Breaking News: According to reports, Barcelona is fully committed to a £150 million swap agreement with Chelsea, seeing it as an essential addition to their team.

Chelsea is about to make a sizable £80 million offer for one of FC Barcelona’s best players.

The team, which is struggling financially and with Financial Fair Play requirements, is thinking of selling a star player to bolster their lineup at Montjuic Stadium.

Barcelona is reluctant to part ways with Ronald Araujo, despite the fact that he is an important member of the central defense.

Since midfield players like Gavi and Pedri are considered untouchable, Frenkie de Jong could be a good asset for a big sale.

De Jong was free to transfer in 2021, but under outgoing head coach Xavi Hernandez, his standing with the team has changed.

Alongside Ilkay Gundogan and Pedri, he has gone from a bench role to an undisputed starter.

While Barcelona isn’t actively looking to sell De Jong, it is willing to take offers of about €100 million.

In an effort to spread out the deferred payments from the pandemic over the longer contract, the board is trying to convince De Jong to sign a three-season extension.

 

With a salary of €24.8 million this season, €23.2 million the following season, and €23 million in the final year of his contract, De Jong is currently the highest paid player in the first team.

The team is in negotiations with Chelsea, and owner Todd Boehly is willing to hold direct discussions, which could ease Barcelona’s financial burden.

The goal of the talks is to reach a mutually beneficial agreement that tackles Barcelona’s debt and transfer market issues.
