Transfer: Xavi reveals two reasons why De Jong may leave Barcelona


Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez has revealed he has spoken to Frenkie de Jong about his future at the club.

De Jong has been heavily linked with a summer transfer to Manchester United, however a move has so far failed to materialise.

Xavi, speaking after a 1-0 win over Real Madrid in a pre-season friendly, admitted the player could still leave because of the club’s economic situation and Financial Fair Play (FFP).

“I’m not here to send messages. I already spoke with Frenkie. I value him very much.

“He’s key player, but then there’s economic situation and Financial Fair Play.

“He can give us a lot also as a centre back,” Xavi said.
