Doubts to keep De Jong as FC Barcelona learn the price for him to stay

FC Barcelona don't know whether to offer a new contract or sell De Jong.

Frenkie De Jong could leave FC Barcelona at the end of the season for a lot of money.

FC Barcelona has expressed its intention not to sell important players this summer to raise funds for the club. It is very complicated to sign new players, let alone register players for the La Liga season. Barca has struggled to register Gavi as a first-team player as well as trying to register new signings in the past, like Joao Cancelo and Joao Felix. Barca suffer a new dilemma with Frenkie de Jong as the player could leave this summer.

De Jong has expressed frustration with the club's performances but also feels comfortable in Spain. FC Barcelona will be looking for a fee of £85m to allow Frenkie de Jong to leave this summer, with Manchester United and Chelsea both interested in the Dutch midfielder. Chelsea reportedly is willing to bid 100 million euros for De Jong. While Barca does think about keeping the player, De Jong does not want to negotiate a contract renewal with Barcelona nor accept a transfer. His idea is to continue with the contract he signed in 2020. His contract expires in 2026.

De Jong feels comfortable with his family in Barcelona, ​​but on the sporting level, he has doubts. He sees that the team is not performing well, and there are no signs of improvement next season due to FFP. A renewal offer has been submitted to him, which includes a salary of €15M per season. The club now awaits De Jong's response urgently, or else they will consider selling him for a big amount in the summer, like 80-100m euros.

The club is opening the door for him to leave this summer for a minimum of 100 million euros.
