Transfer: Barcelona coach, Xavi gives update on De Jong’s move to new club


Barcelona coach, Xavi, has revealed he is unsure if midfielder, Frenkie de Jong will still be at the club when the season begins.

De Jong has been linked with a move to Manchester United and Chelsea, but according to reports, he wants to stay at Camp Nou.

Speaking after Barcelona’s pre-season friendly against NY Red Bulls at the weekend, Xavi said at his post-match press conference that he doesn’t need to send a signal regarding the player’s future, adding that a lot of things can still happen.

Xavi said, “I don’t know if he’s [De Jong] going to stay here. There is still time and a lot of things can still happen.

“At the moment, he’s part of the team, like everyone else. The fact that he played as a central defender in the other games was not a sign that he was leaving.

“I don’t need to send signals on the pitch. I can speak directly with my footballers.”
