- The Dutchman maintains his position but behind closed doors, he already sees the ‘blue’ option with good eyes if he has to leave Barca
Barca has been placing Frenkie de Jong on the market for months. The player, for his part, has always maintained a firm position and, despite the ‘inputs’ that have come to him from different levels of Barcelona, his priority has always been to continue at Barcelona. Despite this, inside the locker room the midfielder has already acknowledged that if he had to leave, Chelsea would be a good option.
If you were Barca, would you sell Frenkie De Jong?

Moreover, the Dutchman admitted to some of his teammates that he will not accept his departure to Manchester United in any case, but that the English club is a ‘top’ team, which plays in the Champions League and with which it could fight for everything. A statement coinciding with information revealed by press reports, that De Jong will only consider leaving for Chelsea or Bayern Munich. Now I realize that also internally.
Chelsea waits to go with everything
Meanwhile, in England, journalist David Ornstein, of The Athletic, added that United are still trying to impress the Dutchman, but Chelsea will come in strong, as long as they do. The London club is ready to make an offer that will satisfy Barcelona and even, according to Ornstein, take over the salary debts that the Catalan club incurs with De Jong.
