Frenkie de Jong was one of the most outstanding players in the first round of the World Cup in Qatar. He participated in the match of his team, the Netherlands, against Senegal, and although it ended in a 0-2 victory, the Orange team were not able until the last minutes to break the tie. And he did it, in large part, thanks to the performance of the Barcelona midfielder.
Frenkie de Jong continues to make headlines about his future outside Barcelona
Throughout the match, his physical spread was massive and he had some clear chances to score, but in the end he made up for his teammates. With all that said, De Jong is focused on the World Cup and certainly doesn’t want to think about anything else, but there is no doubt that the rumors surrounding his future must occupy part of his time.
In addition, he went to the World Cup, attacking Barcelona, \u200b\u200bwith explosive statements in which he made it clear that he did not like how the club tried to sell him last summer. He refused to leave, because he did not receive any offer that fulfilled all his desires, but he knows that there are still clubs that want to get him out of Barcelona. In addition to Manchester United and Chelsea, there has been a resurgence of interest from Liverpool in recent days.
Although it is reasonable to think that the Reds see him as an important promotion for next summer, it cannot be ruled out that they see with good eyes that the signing could take place during the January winter market, once the World Cup in Qatar is over.
Already in the summer, Jurgen Klopp admitted that he would have liked to strengthen his team even more in this position, but he was left without Jude Bellingham and without Aurelien Choameni.
Finally, they have only managed to sign Arthur Melo, who has yet to make his debut, due to injury and want to shorten his transfer window and return to Juventus in January. Then, a void would occur which the Dutchman could fill.
In Barcelona, Xavi Hernandez relies on De Jong and does not want him to leave at any cost, but the dilemma remains the same as it was a few months ago. From an economic point of view, this would be a good operation for the club, but from a sporting point of view, it would mean the loss of one of the best players this season.
