Video De Jong praises Xavi before the match against Galatasaray
Frenkie de Jong arrived at Barca from Ajax in 2019 and has become an important name in midfield. However, up to the current season, De Jong has experienced an unstable period. At times, he was overwhelmed by younger talents such as Pedri and Gavi.
Along with Barca’s financial difficulties, there was information that Blaugrana wanted to sell De Jong if the price was right. But, after all, the star born in 1997 still feels satisfied with the current life at the Nou Camp.
In an interview with ZiggoSport when asked about his future, De Jong expressed happiness and rejected interest from Bayern Munich:
“I like it at Barcelona. I could sign a six-year contract extension if the club sends me an offer . Is there something between me and Bayern? No, I’m very happy at Barcelona and I want to play. The ball stays here for as long as possible.”
Last season, De Jong won the only title at the club to date when he won the Copa del Rey with Barca. With Barca entering the quarter-finals of the Europa League, De Jong has the opportunity to join the host club to the throne in the European arena.
