Xavi will let £75 million man to sign for likes of Chelsea, will fans welcome La Liga star?
Barcelona boss Xavi is prepared to listen to offers for Frenkie de Jong, but would Chelsea fans like to see the player arrive?
Barcelona paid £75m to bring the Netherlands international to the club from Ajax in 2019 and he has one of their most consistent performers in that time.
However, the January window is just around the corner and speculation has claimed that The club may look to raise funds through player sales with El Chiringuito reporting that 21-year-old star de Jong could be put up for sale.
Barcelona are strapped for money and know that they will need to sell a few players in the coming transfer windows in order to try and acquire the stars that would make the club challengers once again, because they are not
And Chelsea may opt to make a move for the talented star, as they were keen before he signed for Barcelona and see him as the idea man to take over from Ngolo Kante or Jorginho in the centre of midfield
They have the money to make a move and get a deal done, so if De Jon does come onto the transfer market, then we would not be surprised to see the Blues make a move to try and get a deal done.
However, De Jong has been brilliant since his move to Barcelona and it could be a massive waste if they let him leave the club, as he adds some real quality to that squad
As we said, De Jong has been brilliant since his move to Barcelona and if there is a chance for the likes of Chelsea to make a move to try and get a transfer deal done, they should make a move
They already have a number of quality midfielders in the squad, but De Jong is a special type of star and WE ARE SURE THAT CHELSEA FANS WOULD WELCOME THE PLAYER
