(Video) Frenkie de Jong verbally abused by fans outside Barcelona training ground

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong was targeted with verbal abuse outside the club’s training ground on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old drove towards Barcelona’s training centre on Wednesday, only to be greeted by a man outside screaming (quotes via Daily Mail): “Lower your salary, p****!”

This is just an example of the ugly scenes in Barcelona where they’ve got a vast number of financial issues to address.

To make matters worse, De Jong is under contract until June 2026, having signed an extension in 2020 – but Barcelona still owes the midfielder €17 million in deferred wages.

The Athletic claims a condition of that deal, which was signed during the COVID-19 pandemic, was that De Jong’s salary would be temporarily reduced during the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons.

Now it sounds like the situation is about to get messy as we approach transfer deadline day.

De Jong has been heavily linked with a move away from Camp Nou, with Manchester United and Chelsea showing significant interest in his signature this summer.

Sky Sports stress United already have an agreement in place with Barcelona for the player.

At least De Jong would be able to travel to and from training without verbal abuse in Manchester.

  1. Despite a concerted effort by Barcelona to get Frenkie de Jong to leave the club, and now with the fans also lending their dissenting voices, what next for him??? It is okay if he does not want to join United, but what is so special about his current club.
    The club is financially mismanaged and there is no assurance that they will be among the top clubs with quite a few departures. Both Real and Atletico Madrid have strengthened and in Real’s case they are both the current La Liga and European Champions.

  2. Barca should have respect the deal they had so as to let him leave.it isn’t as if the guy really wants to stay but he wants them to pay the debt the club is owing him.
    And another thing is it isn’t easy to leave a club playing in the champion’s league to a club in a conference league.

    But still I believe the deal will be done.
