Laporta sent a tactician to ‘seduce’ De Jong

Barcelona are looking to convince Frenkie de Jong to take another pay cut . Keeping  Jordi Cruyff  at the club seems to have presented a great opportunity for them to convince the Dutch star.

The financial problems of the Catalan “giant” have always been the focus of sports newspapers in recent days. President Joan Laporta and associates did everything possible to try to balance the books. A series of Barca players have to cut wages during the pandemic to ease the pressure. Only De Jong is still waiting to receive the salary the club owes him.


That has caused Barca to be heavily criticized by the media. Laporta wants De Jong – who is leading the list of the team’s highest-paid players – to fit into the team’s new salary structure. Cruyff – who is a countryman and has a close relationship with De Jong – is said to be the main contact with the 25-year-old midfielder. Laporta wants him to be an adviser to “seduce” the former Ajax player to reduce his salary as low as possible.


This is a big decision for Barca, because before that they just wanted to “get rid” of De Jong to Man United as soon as possible. Experts say that it is because coach Xavi Hernandez appreciates De Jong’s role and wants him to stay to inherit Sergio Busquet’s position that Laporta intends to keep this player. But the most important thing is that De Jong must reduce his salary deeply and …  no more debt collection from Barca.

Barca is about to receive a huge “gift” from Chelsea?

If the Dutch star is determined not to suffer losses, Barca still has another solution. Journalist Gerard Romero said, “Chelsea” is about to send an official offer to buy De Jong. The Blues are torn between two options: £63m plus £12m in surcharges or £67m plus £8m in surcharges.


This is a higher number than what Man United has ever offered. Previously, the Red Devils had reached an agreement with Barca for a transfer fee of 75 million euros plus 10 million euros in surcharges. It can be said that the “gift” that Chelsea is about to give Barca is the key to solving all problems related to De Jong at the moment. There is no reason why Laporta would refuse this attractive offer from the “friend” of London.
