Zapping Goal! soccer club Real Madrid, FC Barcelona: top 10 most capped players in the Champions League
Chelsea continues to eye the priorities of FC Barcelona on the transfer window. After being embedded on the tracks Raphinha, Koulibaly Kounde or Dembele, the Blues want to offer Frenkie De Jong while Joan Laporta negotiates a drop in salary to keep the midfielder. According to Sport, the Catalan daily, Chelsea would have even informed FC Barcelona that an official offer was going to be made for the Dutch international.
Chelsea want to overtake Manchester United
The London club is trying to overtake Manchester United, which is already unsure of being able to enlist the former Ajax, even with arguments like Ten Hag or Van de Beek, whom De Jong knows well. The Dutchman is in conflict with Barca as his salary is costing the club far too much. Thus Laporta offered the defensive midfielder a drop in salary or a departure, but the person concerned does not want either one or the other. Chelsea will therefore have to both align with the 85 million requested by the Blaugranas and posed by United, and convince De Jong to leave his family.
