One of the goals that Barcelona has set for the coming months after the conclusion of the winter market is the renewal and adaptation of the Frenkie de Jong contract. A similar action to that with Ter Stegen, which culminated a few days ago with his extension until 2028. However, this operation, when finally carried out, will not be as easy as that of the goalkeeper. German.
From the outset, Barcelona has not yet made any official move. He intends to discuss the Dutchman’s contract, but no meeting has taken place so far. And the player is in no hurry to activate this topic. This must be considered De Jong’s commitment ends in June 2026. And he has a good contract with a lot of money still waiting to be paid. This season he will receive a guaranteed fixed salary between base salary, deferment and bonus, which exceeds 27 million gross.
The player knows that he can sign with any team when his contract ends and receive all the money when he arrives with the freedom letter. The club, for its part, The aim is to give you security by extending your contract, but he knows that he cannot pay the amounts that De Jong is currently receiving. And the situation is not the same as Ter Stegen, as the German signed his last major contract with Barcelona, as it ends at 36 years old.
For these reasons, a quick solution to this renewal is not envisaged. It is clear that De Jong plays at a very high level. He is becoming more and more important in the Barça game and since Busquet’s departure he has become Barça’s orchestra conductor. It won’t be easy to reduce the salary, it already happened back then and because of everything that happened last summer.
