Frenkie de Jong has become the centre of attention in the transfer market. The Dutchman, one of the most exciting signings at Barcelona in recent seasons, could leave the club due to their need to make a big sale this summer.
Various clubs are interested and Barça are prepared to listen, as they are with most of their squad. But they will not let the former Ajax player leave for less than 100 million euros, be that the upfront fee or with add-ons.
Manchester United, as SPORT revealed 10 days ago, have made contact to sound out a move but it is still very early stages and Barça have no plans to undersell De Jong, who is reluctant to move despite the noise.
Selling De Jong is the most attractive option Barça have to bring in a big fee. He was signed for 75 million and part of that is now amortised. They believe his market value is no less than 100 million.
