Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has failed to rule out a potential exit for Frenkie de Jong amid interest from Manchester United and other European sides.
Several reports are claiming Man United are strongly interested in signing De Jong from Barca in the summer, amid a financial crisis at Nou Camp.
Some Spanish journalists reported that Frenkie de Jong’s move to Old Trafford was ‘95% likely’ going to happen while others claimed Manchester United‘s new boss, Erik ten Hag is in ‘love’ with the former Ajax midfielder and would want him at United.
Man United are expected to cough out around about £60million if they wish to lure the Netherlands international this summer.
Though Xavi Hernandez has described the 25-year-old midfielder as ‘very important’, he admitted that the Dutchman is transferrable, thanks to the financial struggle Barcelona currently find themselves.
“For me, Frenkie [de Jong] is very important. He is fundamental. But then there is also the economic situation. I’m not specifically talking about Frenkie, but in general,” Xavi told Gerard Moreno.
“There are untouchable, non-transferable and transferable players. I have very clear planning. We just need to know where we are at an economic level to decide one thing or another for next season.”
Frenkie de Jong has made 31 La Liga appearances and have only three goals to show as a central midfielder.
