In the transfer posse around Robert Lewandowski (33), a domino effect involving Frenkie De Jong (24) could bring about the solution.
Squad place: Frenkie De Jong’s departure from FC Barcelona could pave the way for Robert Lewandowski’s move to the Catalans, as reported by the English “Mirror”. Manchester United has long been considered an interested party. Both De Jong and Lewandowski’s contracts expire next year. So your clubs could last transfer earnings this summer.
Indications of intention: Barca coach Xavi would like to continue working with De Jong, but knows about the financial difficulties of his club: “I like him and I think he can start an era here at the club. We’ll see what the club’s economic situation means, but I really like him.”
Future plans: Without a sale of De Jong, Barca could lack the wherewithal to handle the Lewandowski transfer. De Jong himself doesn’t seem to be expecting a move. On Instagram, he thanked Barca fans and promised that “we will work hard to be more successful next year.”
