With 3 days to go until the end of the transfer market in England, Thomas Tuchel's team launches an offensive that could be definitive for the purchase of Frenkie de Jong. FC Barcelona would then go for Bernardo Silva, from Manchester City.
Hot days in the transfer market. After acquiring Marc Cucurella, paying more than €60 million to Brighton, and sealing the continuity of César Azpilicueta until 2024, Chelsea wants to make one last big move. The blues are willing to throw the house out the window for Frenkie de Jong, a player for FC Barcelona.
As Sport points out, Chelsea's last offer for the Dutchman could be accepted by Barça. The Londoners have put €70 million on the table plus Marcos Alonso 's pass as technical compensation. An operation that depends on the will of the player to get ahead, since Barça needs to lower the large wage bill.
Marcos Alonso would arrive at Barça as well
In the same way, if Frenkie ends up rejecting the blues, the signing of Marcos Alonso by Barça will also be closed, in an operation that would be around €10 million. After losing Azpilicueta, Xavi's men now want to reinforce the left-handed lane and give Jordi Alba competition.
This sounds as a really good news for Chelsea fans who are longing for Frankie De Jong to join their team. With this strategy of player swap plus an amount of €70 million, it is likely Barcelona will accept and the rest will depend on the player. Whether he want to leave or stay.
If, on the contrary, the Dutch midfielder accepts his fate and ends up packing for Stamford Bridge, in Barcelona they will go for Bernardo Silva, with Manchester City aware that the will of the Portuguese goes through dressing as a Blaugrana. A domino effect that could end with the citizens taking over the services of Lucas Paquetá, star of Olympique de Lyon.
