Tottenham remain in the race for Frenkie De Jong

Tottenham Hotspur are in the race to sign Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong, who is also a target for Chelsea and Manchester United. According to a report from Mundo Deportivo, broadcast by Sport Witness, Spurs have made an initial offer of €70 million for the Dutch midfielder. However, Barcelona remain steadfast in their position and will demand €100 million to let him go.

Frenkie de Jong, 26, has distinguished himself as one of the best midfielders in the world since his time at Ajax. His arrival at Barcelona in July 2019 made him a key player for the Catalan club, contributing 16 goals and 21 assists in more than 200 games. However, Barcelona’s financial situation has led to uncertainty over De Jong’s future, sparking interest from clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United and now Tottenham.

Tottenham must improve their offer to sign De Jong

Both Chelsea and Manchester United have already shown interest in De Jong in the 2022 summer transfer window, but no deal has been concluded. Now Tottenham are joining the offer and are submitting an initial offer of 70 million euros for the talented midfielder.

For their part, Barcelona stick to their assessment of De Jong and set a price of 100 million euros for his departure. Although all three Premier League clubs could theoretically afford to pay this amount, compliance with Financial Fair Play could be a deciding factor in their decisions.

The possibility of Barcelona selling De Jong for €100 million could not only balance their finances but also fund moves for their own transfer targets. Therefore, it will be interesting to see how this situation develops in the coming months and where De Jong will play next season, especially given his desire to stay at Barcelona.
