Barça ready to sell the Dutchman and fire the striker
Barca want to speed up sports planning, especially with departures. The Blaugrana club plan to hold a summit today with the agents of Frankie de Jong there Martin Braithwaite to clarify his future, according to ‘ESPN’. In the former case, Barca hope to advance in a negotiation with Manchester United or Chelsea to conclude a big transfer, although they want to know the Dutchman’s position firsthand. As for Braithwaite, Blaugrana have tried everything and they will try to agree on a beneficial termination for the club despite the Dane asking for the full two years of his contract.
The pinnacle for De Jong and Braithwaite was already expected with the team’s return from the US tour. Barca are trying to find a solution with De Jong as they can’t pay him the bill he is expected to receive this year due to the salary deferral agreed with the previous board due to the pandemic. Barca’s idea is to explore a transfer and, for this reason, they have negotiated with United and Chelsea to sell him for a minimum of 80 million. If the player closes the strip to leave, Barça will urge him to lower his salary yes or yes for this season.
Chelsea are now pushing hard for Frenkie de Jong and they are confident the transfer deal can go through. The London club believe they can convince the Dutchman to leave Barca to carry out his project in midfield. We will have to see if Of Jong agrees to go out.
As for Braithwaite, the club made it clear to him that they didn’t have him and it was impossible to negotiate an agreed departure despite having offers. It seems that everything is heading towards a contract termination, but the club hopes to lower the economic amounts. According to ‘ESPN’, Pjanic and Memphis’ agents will also be in Barcelona today to discuss their future.
