Bayern linked with fresh move for Frenkie de Jong
When it comes to the transfer market, Bayern are simply one of the best in the business.
It’s claimed by Spanish media that Bayern Munich are linked with fresh move for Frenkie de Jong.
The 24-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Barcelona spent 86 million euros to sign the Netherlands international from Ajax in the summer of 2019. He has five years left on his current contract which expires in 2026.
The midfielder has banged in one goal and provided two assists in 25 matches this term on all fronts.
The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Netherlands. He has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goals in 38 senior appearances for the Netherlands national team.
The Netherlands international midfielder has struggled to adapt to Spanish football and he could be made available this winter.
De Jong is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Bayern Munich this winter. He is a long-term target of Bayern Munich and could be a decent addition for Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
The former Ajax man has the talent to play many roles in midfield. He has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.
According to the report, “Bayern Munich are considering a late move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong. Marca says the Bavarian club want to sign the Dutch midfielder in this transfer window, and their representatives have already been in contact with De Jong’s agents to show their interest, meaning the coming week will be huge for his future. The tension between the two clubs has been there for a while now, and started when Bayern tried to interfere with Pedri’s contract renewal at the Camp Nou and also tried to move in on Sergino Dest. Barcelona responded by looking at a potential transfer of defender Niklas Sule, as well as inquiring about several players from the Germans’ youth sides. If Bayern don’t manage to sign De Jong in this window, they’ll try again in the summer. The ex-Ajax man is seen as a player who would fit in perfectly at the Allianz Arena, and is viewed as a long-term option in their midfield.”

Bayern Munich will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Barcelona to the negotiating table. The German giants have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.
Barcelona are preparing to sell their midfielder should they receive a massive offer for him.
Frenkie de Jong ideal fit for Bayern Munich?
If Frenkie de Jong is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Bayern.
