Barça want to sell De Jong because they need to lower their wage bill to register Jules Kounde and Marcos Alonso. As an alternative, they have proposed that he reduces his salary.
For now, his agents and the .er, who was on the bench against Rayo Vallecano, have refused to negotiate a salary cut and have not shown a will to leave, either, but the Blaugrana are beginning to believe that it’s a strategy to get the best possible conditions from United or Chelsea.
