Chelsea set to make approach for €490,000 a-week Dutch midfielder in quest to beat Manchester United to his signature

Man United will not be the only team looking to add Frenkie de Jong in 2023. The Barcelona midfielder is also the subject of interest from Chelsea over a potential move next year. The Netherlands international joined the Blaugrana from Ajax in a big-money move three years ago and has endured a topsy-turvy ride since then.

While de Jong has been decent enough, he finds himself behind Gavi in the pecking order. His current predicament has come in the wake of the Catalan giants’ failed attempts to sell him in the summer. Frenkie has featured in every match he has been available for.

But the 25-year-old midfielder has started just five times for the Blaugrana this campaign. And recent reports have claimed that he might consider his future if he does not become a regular anytime soon. Such a situation has captured the attention of Chelsea and Man United.

Recent reports have claimed that Man United are willing to fork out €80m to sign the Dutch midfielder. But the Red Devils will have to fend off stiff competition from Chelsea to secure the services of the Dutchman next year. Like Man United, Chelsea also tried to add the former Ajax midfielder in the summer transfer window.

But Frenkie only wanted to remain at Barcelona, with or without Champions League football on offer. However, with his situation not improving, the London giants might be an attractive destination amid uncertainties surrounding the futures of Jorginho and Kante.
