Frenkie de Jong will no longer play for Barcelona again this season following an ankle injury he sustained last night against Real Madrid.

It was suspected that the ankle injury he sustained could keep him out for at least a month and has now been confirmed.

As such, the game against Real Madrid will be the midfielder’s last one of the season and there may even be a possibility that it could turn out to be his final one for Barcelona.

Barcelona management ready to sell

Indeed, as per AS, Frenkie de Jong’s future at Barcelona is very much up in the air heading into the summer transfer window especially given the club’s financial needs and the fact that the midfielder has a high stock in the Premier League.

It must be noted that De Jong is on an ascending contract and his salary next season will be greater than what he earns currently, with the deal continuing until 2026.

As such, the Barcelona management feels that this might be the right time to offload the Netherlands international, more so if the midfielder does not accept the terms offered to him as part of a new contract, which will certainly be lower than what he currently pockets.

Given this complicated situation, everything is open as far as De Jong’s future. No matter how much the midfielder insists that he wants to stay, the file remains open at the club.

There are admirers for him in the Premier League while more recently Bayern Munich have also shown an interest in him.

As per reports over the weekend, Barcelona will seek a minimum transfer fee of €70 million if they do decide to part ways with the former AFC Ajax star.
