Barcelona can get 80m for Frenkie de Jong
And while there is no information yet on the status of negotiations between the clubs, according to Romero’s report, the probability of a transfer is “95 percent”. The fee for a rumored transfer should be between 70 and 80 million euros. In the summer of 2019, Barcelona signed De Jong for 86 million from Ajax Amsterdam.

Barcelona denies transfer rumors – Soler is a possible successor
Rumors of a possible De Jong sale have swirled in recent weeks, but Barcelona have already denied it – was this just so as not to jeopardize negotiations with United?
Xavi has repeatedly emphasized in recent times how important the Dutchman is to him. “Franke is making the difference. He has made some excellent games this season. He has the ability to go into the penalty area and score goals, I told him that personally. I don’t see many players with his qualifications at this level. This is very important for the present and the future.”
But it now appears that De Jong’s future may not be with FC Barcelona, who are said to be more than open to a move – despite Xavi’s laudation. Meanwhile, De Jong himself is said to want to stay at Barcelona, even if he was recently replaced prematurely and may not be happy about it. “We had a very positive conversation between two people. Replacing his frustration, Ryo is very ambitious,” Xavi recently admitted. Blaugrana appears to be pushing the 24-year-old out for financial reasons.
