However, with first Pedri and now Gavi’s breakthrough in consecutive seasons, can they find a way to shed an expensive asset?
Xavi refused the request
In short, no.
If Xavi’s words are anything to go by, it’s no surprise that De Jong will stay in Catalonia for the foreseeable future. Speaking ahead of Barca’s clash with Villareal on Saturday night, Xavi said:
“We need them [de Jong, Gavi] – they are not for sale at all. Selling them is not our idea. Riqui Puig is like another player on our team. We believe in him.”
Barcelona boss Xavi has denied rumors that Frenkie de Jong will leave the club next summer: “We need them [de Jong, Gavi] – they are not for sale at all. Selling them is not our idea. Riqui Puig is like another player on our team. We believe in him.” 🚫 #FCB
