FC Bayern will probably have new competition with Frenkie de Jong

Frenkie de Jong has so far not lived up to the great expectations at FC Barcelona. Therefore, there is already speculation about a change of playmaker. Again and again, FC Bayern is associated with the Dutchman. However, the competition for Munich is obviously great.

FC Barcelona signed Frenkie de Jong from Ajax Amsterdam in the summer of 2019 for 86 million euros. The record of the 24-year-old reads so far but rather mixed. Although the central midfielder is set for the Catalans, de Jong has not yet been able to develop into a leader.

Because of this, the eight at Barca is considered a potential candidate for sale. There doesn’t seem to be a lack of potential buyers. After all, de Jong has already been traded at FC Bayern and FC Chelsea in recent weeks. Now Juventus is said to be getting into the transfer poker for the midfielder.

According to “Gazzetta dello Sport” Turin’s de Jong is on the list for the summer. The financially troubled FC Barcelona could generate important income by selling the 38-time national player. However, Juventus is said to be interested in another star player.

Is Juventus also courting Jorginho?

Accordingly, the Italian first division club is also courting Jorginho from Chelsea. The 30-year-old has been at the top of the world since last season at the latest. The six won the Champions League with the Blues and were also crowned European champions with Italy.

While Jorginho is under contract at Chelsea until 2023, de Jong’s working paper at Barca is even dated until 2026. However, Juventus should only have a realistic chance of winning the two midfielders if they reach the Champions League. The Bianconeri are currently fifth in Serie A.
