All summer long, the Barcelona midfielder has been included in transfer rumors.
According to a recent source, Chelsea FC is preparing an offer for Frenkie De Jong, the starting midfielder for Barcelona who has been linked to several Premier League clubs this summer.
There have been ongoing rumors about him joining Manchester United and working with former manager Erik ten Hag. According to some sources, Barcelona and United have even agreed on a transfer fee.
According to several sources, De Jong has not been fully convinced to join United. In addition, complications surrounding deferred wages have been cited as a reason for the transfer failing to go through.
Chelsea has been rumored as another possible destination before but the links are growing in intensity. The rumor is that Chelsea has a “strong desire” to sign the Dutchman.
However, a lack of reports linking De Jong to Chelsea from the English media has led some to doubt how strong the rumor is.
