Xavi is counting on Frenkie de Jong this season – Coach Xavi has Sunday night after securing the Trofeu Joan Gamper once again emphasized that he hopes that Frenkie de Jong stays at FC Barcelona. The Dutchman listened to his substitution against the Mexican Pumas UNAM (6-0) with a goal.
“Frenkie knows my position and that of the club. I think he’s a great player and I’m counting on him this season. But I don’t know what’s going to happen until August 31,” Xavi told TV3 after the traditional exhibition game.
It has been buzzing for weeks with the rumors around De Jong. The midfielder would like to stay at FC Barcelona, but the Catalan club benefits financially from selling him. The Manchester United of coach Erik ten Hag already showed far-reaching interest and would already agree with Barcelona about a transfer fee.

Chairman Joan Laporta now speaks out about the situation around De Jong almost every week. The sixty-year-old Spaniard recently said that the much-discussed midfielder can ‘just’ stay at FC Barcelona, but that he must then agree to a reduction in his salary.
Before the match against Pumas UNAM, the president spoke again about the situation of the 44-time international. “Offers for Frenkie de Jong have come in.
But we want him to stay and that’s what Frenkie himself wants,” laporta said. The contract of the former Ajax player runs until mid-2026.
De Jong came into the field as a substitute on Sunday after half-time and was responsible for the sixth and final goal against Pumas UNAM in the 84th minute.
FC Barcelona starts the new season in La Liga on Saturday with a home game against Rayo Vallecano. (Xavi is counting on Frenkie de Jong this season)
