FC Barcelona looks to bring in new players this summer at the cost of selling key players in the current squad. Barca could not afford to buy superstar players for a high price due to the club's debt. Recently, La Liga revealed the salary limit for each club in the league, and Barca's limit has decreased. This makes it harder for the club to sign new, highly talented players in the summer transfer window.

One of the players who were rumored to leave the club this summer is Frenkie De Jong. The Dutch midfielder has a high market value, with teams like Chelsea willing to bid $108 million on him. While Barca could use that money to benefit the club, many fans do not want them to sell De Jong since he is one of the best players on the team. De Jong was rumored to be unhappy in the team and was reportedly looking to leave this summer. De Jong shut those rumors down in a press conference before the Napoli game in the Champions League.

According to Sport reporter Toni Juanmarti, Barca sporting director Deco had a meeting with Frenkie De Jong's agent, Ali Dursun, in Barcelona today. The meeting was positive. The club wanted to convey a message to the player that they trusted him. Frenkie is happy at the club and wants to continue for many more years in Barcelona. FC Barcelona would like to renew Frenkie de Jong's contract with a salary reduction.
