FC Barcelona’s sporting area heads – Jordi Cruyff and Mateu Alemany font along with the core that controls the club’s economy have declared Frenkie de Jong as an untouchable for the club as per the recent reports from SPORT.

The Dutch midfielder was one of the best players for his National team in the Qatar World Cup and is considered as an essential player by Xavi Hernandez both for the present times and the years to come.

All the rumors surrounding the future of the former Ajax player since last summer about the club trying to force his move out for a lump sum of €80 million to Manchester United can now be put to an end. Before the activation of economic levers to procure funds for transfer activity, selling the Dutch maestro was the easiest way to creep in the boundaries of La Liga’s Financial fair play limits.

FC Barcelona also are not going to ask him for any personal efforts to lower his salary now that the payment of most of his salary is approaching, which was deferred previously due to the pandemic.
