The last summer window had been difficult for Frenkie de Jong, the Barcelona midfielder to endure. He has been constantly in the limelight as the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United tried taking him from Spotify Camp Nou.
Regardless of the pressure tactics that included playing him as the center-back at the time and also dropping him from the team’s lineup, de Jon stuck to his stands of staying put at Barcelona and turned down Man United while not agreeing to cut down on his wages.
The 25-year-old player might have remained in Barcelona but Toni Juanmarti is now reporting that he might not have forgotten the ordeal that he had been put through by his club at the time of summer. In spite of how he felt he had been treated by the club’s administration, he is still angry with it.
In the meantime, the stance of Catalan faints on the midfielder has flipped from the summer completely. They just saw him as a cash cow during the transfer window last summer, the Blaugrana take the midfielder as an important component of the team.
At the time of the exit of Sergio Busquets, Barcelona believes de Jong is a valuable player because of his age, versatility, and his strong affinity for the club. In fact, according to the reports, Xavi has informed Barcelona not to entertain any transfer offers, which are coming in for the young player.
