Barcelona believe De Jong will change will his mind about transfer

Manchester United have chased Frenkie de Jong but Barcelona have been unsurprisingly tricky to deal with.

They owe the midfielder €17m in deferred wages which they’re reluctant to pay, as per The Independent, because it is not technically due now. It is understood that he would be entitled to it if he fulfilled his restructured contract.

Catalan journalist Helana Condis, who works for several respected media outlets, claims Barcelona have not ruled out the sale of De Jong. This ultimately means that we’re going to be getting more pointless day-to-day commentary on a potential deal that has dragged on for over eight weeks.

Condis reports that Barca think that De Jong will change his mind, but he now he maintains he wants to stay.

How tiresome is that. It feels like we’ve got nowhere since Richard Arnold and John Murtough arrived in Barcelona two weeks ago for meetings with the La Liga club…

Now it just feels like waiting on De Jong becomes a greater risk with every week that passes.

Especially if Barca are refusing to pay his deferred wages this summer.
