- Bayern Munich are considering a late loan swoop for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong before the transfer window shuts down
- Barcelona are eager to offload the Dutch midfielder as they seek to get rid of his massive wages from their payroll
- Frenkie de Jong does not plan on leaving Barcelona as he feels settled at the club and the city and wishes to succeed at Camp Nou
Frenkie de Jong could end up playing in the German Bundesliga this season as Bayern Munich are now interested in signing the Dutch midfielder from Barcelona.
The Dutch midfielder has been an outcast recently from the La Liga side as Barcelona are eager to get rid of the wages to help the financially strapped side raise funds.
According to Barca Universal, Bayern Munich are now considering signing the €85 million worth Barcelona star on loan in a deal similar to the one they had with Phillipe Coutinho in 2019.
Frenkie de Jong is still adamant about leaving the Camp Nou this summer and is determined to succeed at Barcelona despite the La Liga club’s wish of selling him to raise funds to buy new players.
Manchester United had earlier signified interest in signing De Jong from Barcelona and had tabled an €85 million bid for the Dutch defender but failed to secure the services of the 25-year-old midfielder.

The 25-year-old is reportedly one of the six players Barcelona needs to let go before the transfer market closes on September 1.
