Paris Saint-Germain is already thinking about summer signings despite the fact that there are several months until the end of the season. According to the Spanish media El Nacional, the Parisian team wants to continue incorporating great players, possibly to alleviate the departure of Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid in the middle of next year, when Bondy’s contract has already run out. Along these lines, President Nasser Al-Khelaifi and sports director Leonardo Araújo have noticed some of the figures of Fútbol Club Barcelona: the Dutchman Frenkie de Jong (24 years old).
According to the aforementioned source, the leader of Ligue 1 2021-22 wants to take advantage of the fact that the Netherlands midfielder is going through low hours at the Camp Nou and that the senior managers are not at all happy with his performance, especially with the one that offered in the elimination of the Champions League against Bayern Munich.
To this must be added the critical financial situation that Barcelona is experiencing. If a good offer arrives that exceeds the 5.8 million euros that the midfielder earns per season, the Catalans would not be in a position to match the proposal. It’s now or never for Parisians.
Always according to El Nacional, PSG want the signing of De Jong so much that they would be willing to pay up to 50 million euros for his final transfer or make a change of stickers. On the side of the Parisians, it would be nothing less than Neymar the figure to exchange.
The voices of the protagonists
Aware of the difficult financial situation of Barcelona, John de Jong, father of the Barcelona footballer, spoke about the possibility that his son could leave the Camp Nou, and even revealed that the most important teams in the world have already contacted him.
“I know Barcelona need money and a great offer for Frenkie could help, but I don’t see it happening anytime soon. Although the five best European clubs have called … ”, he told the AD newspaper.
It should be remembered that Frenkie de Jong arrived at FC Barcelona in mid-2019 from Ajax de la Eredivisie. The then president Josep María Bartomeu paid 86 million euros for his pass. The midfielder has a contract at Camp Nou until June 30, 2026.
