Manchester City’s decision on whether or not to sign FC Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong
Ikay Gundogan’s departure from Manchester City, as well as the potential departure of Portuguese midfielder Bernardo Silva, who still hasn’t decided on his future despite having a contract with the squad through 2025, have forced the team to make additions.
According to various sources from England, the club has now set its sights on a player from FC Barcelona and has decided to sign Frenkie De Jong as a result.
After losing out on Bellingham (to Real Madrid) and having little chance of signing Declan Rice (on his way to Arsenal), last season’s treble-winning Manchester City has turned its attention to Frenkie de Jong. This is according to The Sun.
Consequently, utilizing the Etihad Stadium’s tremendous economic potential, Pep Guardiola specifically requested that the club give close to 110 million euros for the 26-year-old player, according to the most recent information.
For the upcoming season, the Spanish Coach would be a huge supporter of the Dutch player. The player might now make a major entrance at the club.
Will Manchester City sign Frenkie De Jong?
Despite the rumors linking the Dutch star to Manchester City, a journalist for 90 Minutes claims that the English team currently has other priorities, such as the acquisition of the nearly $100 million Josko Gvardiol for the defense.
Since Mateo Kovacic has arrived and they are hoping Bernardo Silva can continue, they will decide whether to pursue De Jong after this deal is complete. However, for now, De Jong is not a top priority.
