Frenkie De Jong, not a rumour but apparently for sale

If Touchameni is not being pursed and Declan Rice is too hard perhaps De Jong could fit the bill. At age 25 and reasonably injury free he would fit in well to Chelseas box to box midfielder group I am thinking. Arguably a potential captain as well although I don't really know that.

 

Just a random thought seeing as how there is talk about Barca moving him on.

Mate he played centre back for Ajax. Leaving aside his height and physicality you could argue he is exactly the ball playing centre back we need to replace Silva. Personally I think De Jong and Kounde and some big fast lad on the left would do ok. We would have a Barcelona defence a la Puyol era. Anyhow I probably have no clue.

Would be quite happy if we could sign him. I wonder how much Barca would be looking for though. 

Along the same lines De Ligt would be a cracking signing as well but Juve may want a huge figure. Perhaps a Jorgi plus cash deal may work.

You are mixing up De Ligt (CB) with De Jong (MF).

I’d love him but didn’t he flop at Barcelona?

No he didn’t. He just gets moved around to accommodate their Spanish talents; Pedri & Gavi.

For me if they are really skint, we should be offering them money for Pedri, Gavi, Araujo in that order before considering De Jong. Knowing Tuchel he’d rather have Dest 🤦‍♂️

He did play centre back at times for Ajax too.

No I am not. See Wikipedia "Aged 20, he made 26 appearances for the first team. Primarily he featured as a center-back, in a back four, alongside national teammate Matthijs de Ligt due to the departure of Davinson Sanchez. He also played in a three-man center-midfield. "
 

And this is what I recall anyway. Memory is a funny thing.

Given Barcelona's situation (also reports Jorignho is now likely off) we should be all over it. 

We would still need to prioritise a DM however. 

He is a DM/DLP. Part of the reason he hasn't consistently hit his best at Barca is because he hasn't played there a lot (due to Busquets still hogging the minutes).

I feel like speed and defensively he would be an upgrade over Jorginho in the pivot role, and he's probably just as good technically.

Barcelona never used him properly, he is a deep lying midfielder through and through.

Barcelona still owe him 17m in back wages and apparently that is complicating the deal with United. I am sure Barcelona are trying to write this off into any deal as they are broke.

It's a good excuse, Something isnt adding up at barca...mainly the numbers, How can this be in line with fair play haha, billion quid debt owe all sorts in UNPAID wages and are trying to gazump our transfers and buy our players

We need a barca hate thread tbh, even redcafe have one!

Aparently theyre asking de jong to defer all hes owed apart from 3.5m euros haha

Surely sort that out by asking 18m above what hes worth, utd would pay it

Also rumours doing the rounds that we have offered 60m quid, Alonso AND azpi for him!
