Xavi endorses the sale of De Jong to Manchester United: the reasons

De Jong it will be at next few weeks nuevo Manchester United player. Just like counted Sports Four last week, and how confirmed Gerard Romero This Wednesday, FC Barcelona has given the order to sell the Dutch midfielder in the next transfer market.

The ex of Ajax will sign for Ten Hag’s Manchester United for an amount that will exceed 75 million of euros. FC Barcelona needs to sell to alleviate the serious financial crisis it is suffering and De Jong has been chosen. Dutch midfielder arrived in 2019 for 75 ‘kilos’, with the hope of being the great orchestral master of the Barça midfield. However, three years later he has not got it what was expected of him.

De Jong was not happy with his situation with Xavi

The operation has approval of the directive, of the economic department, of Joan Laporta but also of Xavi Hernandez. The Barça coach wants to renew the midfield for the next season. With the sale of him, the former player intends to sign new midfielders, more of Pedri’s style: players who do not commit turnovers and who understand the game that Xavi proposes.

For the sale of De Jong it will not be necessary to wait long, and it is that will produce in the first days from mercado, with an announcement that can arrive even before the end of this season. It remains to discern what the exact amount of the transfer will be and under what conditions the payment will take place. What does seem clear is that there are no more players, neither from Barcelona nor from Manchester United, involved in this operation.

It should also be noted that Of Jong sees with good eyes his departure from Manchester United. The Dutchman had not received stripes from Xavi and was condemned to wait for Sergio Busquets to leave the club to reach a more important role. In addition, at United he will coincide with Ten Hag, the coach who made him shine at Ajax in 2018/2019.

In this sense, about 60 percent would correspond to FC Barcelona (481 million), while the net debt would amount to 1,946 million, 40 percent of the Catalan group, although 250 million are provisions and do not affect the increase in its debt.
