Equally important in the Barca midfield since the arrival of Xavi, Frankie de Jong has no shortage of courtiers in Europe. The Catalan press also assured this Tuesday that Bayern Munich will target the Dutch midfielder and will consider holding discussions with the Blaugrana club to negotiate a possible transfer.
Undisputed at Barca since signing in July 2019, Frankie de Jong could still leave the Catalan club during the next summer’s transfer window. Unhappy when Xavi replaced him at the hour mark during Sunday evening’s loss to Rio Vallecano (0-1) in La Liga, the 24-year-old Dutchman will think about his future.
According to the Spanish media, such reflections have stoked the appetite of many lovers. If it looks like Erik ten Haag has made it his priority for Manchester United, the Daily Sport ensures Bayern Munich have already put in action for Frankie de Jong. Bavarian coach Julian Nagelsmann will have asked his leaders to recruit a midfielder from Barca this summer.

Already well supplied in the midfield, especially the very promising Jamal Musiala or even Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich, Bayern Munich will therefore be ready to add Frankie de Jong. Julian Nagelsmann will have told his management to be on the lookout for all openings around a possible transfer of the Batavian player. Manchester United’s response to the appointment of Erik ten Haag has thus contributed to the revival of the German champions’ interest.
However, Barca are not a seller according to information from Catalonia, as Jordi Cruyff recalled after the loss against Rio Vallecano.
