“He is seen as a beastly talent. De Jong’s profile is exactly what Barcelona need. He’s really a player to keep an eye on.”
These are the words of the former Barcelona player Xavi. Frenkie De Jong is truly a player who has a great future ahead of him, and the whole world has noticed that. Even though Ajax didn’t sell him last summer, we all know it’ll happen at some point. So the question is: where will Frenkie de Jong play during the second half of the season?

Frenkie de Jong is on his way to Man City
Online sportsbook sites in the Netherlands argue that Man City is the most likely destination for the young midfielder. Looking at the player’s agility, vision, dribbling and passing skills, there’s no doubt Pep Guardiola’s been dreaming about him every night. The Guardian argues that the Cityzens will try their luck with a bid worth of £62million, while Talksport claims they are prepared to pay £80million for Frenkie de Jong until the end of January. 1xBet Sportsbook also thinks that Man City are the favourites to sign him, the odds are 12 on this event.
Barcelona fans are also excited
Since we’re talking about a great young player who’s in a magnificent form recently, of course we must mention Barcelona. The Catalan club is always ready to jump when it comes to talented youngsters, while their young supporters have already started creating those “Frenkie de Jong: Welcome to Barcelona” kind of videos. If you’re photoshopping De Jong’s head onto the body of Ivan Rakitic right now, stop for a second and check out 1xBet Sportsbook. Their odds are as high as 9.80 on the transfer to happen this winter, so if you’re super confident, you can try and win some serious amount of money here.
Spurs were rejected
Papers were also writing about a £40million offer that came from Tottenham Hotspur. However, if the two teams mentioned above are serious about the deal, we all know that Daniel Levy has no chance to fight. While the odds are 40.00 at 1xBet Sportsbook on de Jong joining Spurs, they’re 34.00 on him signing for Real Madrid, as they’re looking for a young midfielder to replace Modric. However, we believe that unless any of the clubs above start talking about six figures in January, Frenkie de Jong will probably stay in the Netherlands for a few more months.
