Barcelona keen to sell Frenkie de Jong due to high wages

Barcelona may be forced to part ways with de Jong due to their financial predicament.

Barcelona are reportedly keen to sell Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong this summer. The Catalan giants have concerns about whether they can afford to pay his wages over the next four years of his contract.

Erik ten Hag has selected the 25-year-old as his primary midfield target in the summer, following the departures of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic.

The Red Devils have been in talks with Barcelona for some time, and although an initial €65m (£56.1m) fee has allegedly been agreed between the two clubs, the Catalan giants are holding out for around €20m (£17.2m) in add-ons.

Marca claims that the Spanish giants may be forced to part ways with the Dutchman due to their financial predicament.

The report also adds that the La Liga club is due to pay De Jong £75m in wages until his contract expires in June 2026, including up to £12m per year in performance-related bonuses.

Frenkie de Jong has made 137 appearances for the club across all competitions, scoring 13 goals and registering 17 assists.
