‘i agreed to leave’: €80M star has agreed to join blues – wants to join Tuchel at Chelsea

Frenkie de Jong has apparently finally made up his mind to leave Barcelona for the Premier League, but only if it means joining Chelsea, according to reports.

The Netherlands international has, however, been strongly linked with a transfer to Old Trafford since Erik ten Hag was appointed. Evidently, Ten Hag wishes to reestablish contact with his former Ajax player.

Recent rumors claim that De Jong even changed his mind and is now willing to sign with the Red Devils before adamantly stating he has no reason to leave the Nou Camp.

It has also been said that Barcelona would take a transfer price of £60M for the midfielder and are pretty open to the idea of letting him leave since they need money due to their continuous financial issues. His transfer worth is €80M.

It goes without saying that Thomas Tuchel thinks his club could need a few players of note to liven things up. De Jong is a player who the Blues look up to since they are missing someone like him in the center of the field.

The playmaker now seems to have opted to leave Barcelona this summer, and he may participate in the Champions League for the Blues, who have been more reliable recently than United.

According to the Spanish daily Sport, the Dutchman is keen to leave the Nou Camp but not to the team that wants him; instead, he would prefer a trade to Chelsea.

Manchester United and Barcelona may miss out on the deal after weeks of bluff and bluster since Chelsea’s speculative bid is reportedly far lower than the €80 million the Red Devils were prepared to pay.

De Jong can play center-half, and Chelsea simply needs to play it wisely to have the chance to get him cheaply.
