How Things Stands For Frenkie De Jong Amid Talks With Chelsea Almost Agreed With Barca

In their quest to recruit Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong before Premier League rivals Manchester United, Chelsea are reportedly making substantial progress.

Since Erik ten Hag, the former Ajax manager of the Holland international, was hired to the position of manager at Old Trafford earlier this summer, there has been continual conjecture regarding the player.

Barcelona's financial woes and De Jong's reluctance to leave the Catalan giants have complicated a move to the 13-time Premier League champions.

Chelsea has been mentioned as a potential substitute option, and the Spanish publication Sport claims they are 'near to agreeing a deal' to capture De Jong as their sixth summer acquisition.

If news rumors out of Spain are to be believed, De Jong has now moved a step closer to joining the Blues this summer.

After Erik ten Hag, the former Ajax manager, was named to the position of manager at Old Trafford earlier this summer, the Holland international has been the focus of ongoing rumors.

In the past six weeks, Blues manager Thomas Tuchel has also signed the English star Raheem Stirling, defenders Marc Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly, goalkeeper Gabriel Slolina from the United States, and midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka.

De Jong is getting ready to sign with the Blues.
