According to Jose Alvarez of El Chiringuito and Diario AS, Barcelona has put Frenkie de Jong up for sale. He’s believed to be one of the most saleable commodities at the club due to his age, potential, and space to improve. This might fetch a high transfer price for the player, given the circumstances in Barcelona, this is critical.

De Jong isn’t having a vintage season this year. He hasn’t shown the form that won him a transfer to Camp Nou in the first place. Aside from a period last season in which he became one of the club’s most important players. He sprang into the limelight as the driving force behind the exciting Ajax squad that swept Europe.

Everything, though, hinges on how Xavi organizes his midfield. If De Jong can establish himself as indispensable, ideas of selling up and cashing in may become obsolete. What counts most is how well things work out on the sports and financial fronts. He could be allowed to stay at Camp Nou and finish what he began if his impact as a player surpasses the benefit of a sale.

According to the report, Pep Guardiola is seeking a midfielder who can fit into his possession-based system, and Manchester City is one of several clubs interested in de Jong. Alternative sources suggested last month that he was even open to a swap deal featuring Raheem Sterling.

The 24-year-old Dutchman joined Barcelona in 2019 as a player the Catalans could build their future around, and he has already played over 100 times for the club. He was an important player under the previous manager Ronald Koeman, and Xavi has previously stated that he admires the center midfielder.

Would sellig Frenkie De Young be a helpful move for Barcelona?

Currently, Barcelona is in one of the most vital rebuilding phases since its inception. With Xavi coming back to the club to play the role of the manager, he would want to steady the ship that is FC Barcelona.

Currently, the player is 24-year-old which means he is on the better side of 20. Due to this, there is quite a high ceiling of potential that the player can hit. This would take place in the upcoming years. With Netherlands qualifying for the upcoming FIFA World Cup Frenkie De Yong now has the international stage to prove his worth. The player this season is averaging 2 key passes per 90 with a 93% pass accuracy.(Source: Sofascore)

In the game against Norway, the player had 93 touches of the ball completing all 4 dribbles attempted, and had a high 98% pass accuracy. Barcelona would be jumping the gun if they wished to sell of Frenkie De Yong before he hit his prime years.
