World class star ‘open to joining’ Chelsea and will accept offer to make move
Chelsea target Frenkie de Jong is ‘open to joining’ the club and will accept an offer from the Blues- according to journalist Simon Phillips.
De Jong has been a player that has been in the headlines a lot over the past 6 months as all indications suggested that he would be leaving Barcelona
It has been claimed on many occasions that Barcelona are keen sell De Jong and recoup some of the money that they have spent on signing new players over the past few weeks
Barcelona have brought in the likes of Raphinha, Jules Kounde and Robert Lewandowski for big money as they look to rebuild the team – and the £60M they could receive from the sale of De Jong would go a long way.
That has led to stunning reports in the media that ChelseaFC have made an offer to try and secure the services of De Jong this summer – as Thomas Tuchel wants to bolster his midfield
Now – amid all the speculation -Phillips has claimed that De Jong is ready to accept an offer from Chelsea and is open to joining the Blues – despite the fact he is keen to stay at Barcelona
he said: “I don’t think it will, not on this occasion because he hasn’t said no to Chelsea, he hasn’t shut it down.
“His people have been open in conversations, and they’re getting a feeling that even though his ideal scenario is to stay at Barcelona, he is also open to joining Chelsea.”
We would not be surprised to see De Jong stay at Barcelona this summer – but we would not be surprised to see him leave either
It is no secret that he will have to take a pay-cut to stay at the Camp Nou – as all these new players have been given massive wages
But we believe the best thing for him to do is depart the club – and Chelsea would be a great move for the man
