Frenkie de Jong and Barcelona president Joan Laporta have reached an agreement.
The bottom line is that the midfielder’s contract with the Catalan club will not be terminated. At the same time, Barcelona will not sue about the contract.
It was reported in August that Barcelona informed de Jong of a possible violation of the law in the extension of his contract in 2020. The club wanted to annul the agreement, and there were also reports of a possible lawsuit.
The essence of the agreement with Laporta is that de Jong stays, but must adapt to the current situation. The footballer will sit down at the negotiating table at the end of the season to discuss a wage cut with Barcelona.
