The French club wanted Frenkie in the past but he chose to go to Barcelona instead
The uncertainty over Frenkie de Jong’s future has awoken interest from various teams across Europe. SPORT already revealed Manchester United’s interest, while Bayern Munich have also followed him. Per media in France, PSG are also interested and have told the player’s people they will move for him if he wants to leave and Barcelona decide to sell. He will have various offers on the table.
Barcelona, for now, have not put the midfielder on the market but know of the interest. They understand that he is a quality player who can make the difference and have no intentions of selling, unless an offer arrives at such a level that it makes them rethink. Barcelona are comfortable with the midfielders they have, although clearly there is an internal debate.
PSG were close to signing him in 2019 but the Dutchman chose Barcelona, despite the money on offer in Paris. He’s always liked the style of Barcelona and his life in the city, but the last few months have been less comfortable.
De Jong is self-critical and professional and knows he has to give more, but has also seen Xavi substitute him multiple times and feels singled out. We’ll have to see if the right offer arrives and if De Jong goes for it.
