Although Barcelona were able to agree on a wage cut with their players and staff, they are still struggling with financial issues due to the coronavirus pandemic. that may be forced to sell Frenkie de Jong for financial reasons.

The Blaugrana signed

Frenkie de Jong

from Ajax for a €75 million fee in 2019. He went on to be one of

Barcelona’s

key players throughout these two seasons, as he made 42 appearances during his debut season as well as 15 so far this campaign.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic’s realities, there would be much work to be done to balance the Catalans’ books, even if

Lionel Messi

leave the club as it’s been rumored.

the club believes they have few true high-value players aside from Messi that they could demand a big fee on them, that are Ansu

Fati

, Marc-Andre

Ter Stegen

, Antoine

Griezmann,

and

De Jong.

Barcelona’s former president, Josep Maria

Bartomeu

, came to terms on a new deal with De Jong several weeks ago that keeps the Dutchman with the club till 2026. However, Barcelona might be forced to sell the highly-rated midfielder as Bayern Munich is a big admirer of him.

The Bavarians had scouted

De Jong

and Matthijs

de Ligt

all through 2018, and they tried to sign De Jong after his breakthrough with Ajax as he ended up with the Blaugrana.

Goal and Spox confirmed that Bayern is still looking to pursue the midfielder, as sporting director,

Hasan Salihamidzic

, has remained in contact with the midfielder's agent in the time since the Dutchman's decision.

With Joshua Kimmich being sidelined for an injury, Bayern is in the market for a midfielder, as it’s being reported that Rennes' Eduardo

Camavinga

and Florian

Neuhaus

of Borussia Monchengladbach are in their radars.
