The Dutch midfielder is also the subject of interest from the Blues’ Premier League rivals Manchester United over a possible move this month. Frenkie de Jong has been the face of one of the defining transfer sagas of the summer. The 25-year-old does not want to leave his dream club Barcelona, especially when he is on the cusp of reaching his peak. But the Catalan giants are scouring for ways to get him off their books to lighten the wage bill and register new signings.
