Recognized for his versatility on the field, De Jong’s capabilities extend across various positions including regista, defensive midfielder, central midfielder, holding midfielder, box-to-box midfielder, and even center-back. His adeptness in blending defensive solidity with creative playmaking has earned him widespread acclaim.

Despite possessing a robust squad, Bayern Munich continues to prioritize the acquisition of a defensive midfielder. Sources indicate that de Jong has resurfaced on the club’s radar, though the feasibility of securing his services this summer remains uncertain.

The substantial wage demands of the 26-year-old render an immediate transfer to Bavaria improbable at the onset of the forthcoming season. Nevertheless, given de Jong’s contract expiration in 2026, Bayern may contemplate a future bid to secure his signature at a discounted rate.


Anticipations are rife that Bayern will allocate substantial resources towards squad reinforcement during the upcoming summer transfer window, with aspirations to reclaim the Bundesliga title.
