Chelsea are paying close attention to Frenkie de Jong’s situation at Barcelona, The Guardian’s Jacob Steinberg reports.
The Blues could make a move for the Dutchman if his transfer to Manchester United collapses.
As per the latest reports, Barca and Man United are close to reaching an agreement for the midfielder in the region of €85m including add-ons.
However, he is yet to agree to personal terms with the English side. Frenkie has been pushing to continue at Camp Nou.
Moreover, with Chelsea playing Champions League next season, they have good chances of landing the Barcelona midfielder, who is contemplating a move to Old Trafford due to lack of Champions League football next season.
