Frenkie de Jong is for sale. This is how José Álvarez, a journalist for El Chiringuito, assures it. According to his information, the club is considering the possibility that there are several interested clubs in the midfielder.

I wish him luck and he replied that it was an honor. He is a footballer to mark an era in Barcelona“.

Xavi continues: “He is an extraordinary player, he is not afraid to receive the ball in difficult areas, to turn around. He needs time to adapt, it is another culture. It is a big club. Frenkie de Jong is Frenkie de Jong. It has nothing to do with it. neither with me, nor with Iniesta nor with Busquets, he is a very capable footballer, he is going to be the organizer of this generation from the Netherlands. He is very capable of doing it. He has a very good generation and is going to achieve great things“From what it seems, if he manages to adapt to the technician’s orders, there will be no debate. If not, the directive already has another perspective …
