FC Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong might still be heading to the Premier League in the coming days. He is one game away from the landmark 100 LaLiga appearances as a Barça player. But it remains to be seen if the Dutchman will reach his centenary in this competition.
The FC Barcelona number 21, came on as a substitute against Rayo Vallecano. He has an uncertain future right now. Frenkie is on the agenda of Manchester United and Chelsea. Furthermore, Barça are thinking about his transfer for economic and financial reasons.
It is unlikely that De Jong’s future will be resolved soon. Therefore, the Dutchman should be at the Reale Arena in San Sebastian coming Sunday. With Busi out with suspension, he will likely get his 100th league appearance.
