Unpleasant fate accepted Frenkie de Jong. Bintang Barcelona it received ridicule from fans who demanded a lower salary. Whoops!
De Jong’s situation at Barcelona is heating up. Blaugrana trying to cancel the Dutch midfielder’s new contract, which requires them to pay a large salary for the player.
In the new contract, Barcelona must give De Jong a net salary of 20 million euros this season and 25 million euros for next season. The money includes payment of De Jong’s wage installments.
Barcelona objected to this and accused De Jong’s new contract of legal problems. The cules claiming to have found evidence of criminal acts related to the names of those who co-signed De Jong’s contract renewal in October 2022, when the club was still under the management of Josep Maria Bartomeu.
Frenkie de Jong insisted on defending what was already his right in the new contract. He did not want his salary cut to below 10 million euros, the minimum wage limit for Barcelona players in the midst of the financial crisis.
Barcelona’s staunch attitude was responded to negatively by Barcelona. Blaugrana threatened to send him to the bench, or be demoted as a center back (which is not his original position) if he did not want a pay cut.
De Jong’s big salary has the potential to bring problems to Barcelona. The cules threatened not be able to register its new players because they do not meet the minimum wage threshold requirements set by the Spanish League.
Attitude stubbornly (stubborn) De Jong about the fee in his contract also made Barcelona fans furious. Several fans mocked De Jong when the former Ajax Amsterdam entered the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper training complex, Wednesday (10/8/202).
“Take a pay cut, you damn bastard,” said one fan towards De Jong’s car in a video uploaded by Spanish media, Sport.
Barcelona the news is that they don’t mind selling De Jong if the player remains strong with his new contract. On the one hand, Frenkie de Jong still wants to stay at the Camp Nou and get what is rightfully his.
