Abidal puts pressure on De Jong: 'He knows about the interest and will make a decision'
- Barcelona technical secretary confirms the club's interest in Frenkie De Jong.
- Abidal suggests that the club and fans now have to wait for the Dutchman to make up his mind.
"He knows about the interest and will make a decision," Abidal said on Tuesday afternoon at Kevin-Prince Boateng's presentation at the Camp Nou. "That is a question more for the player than for me. All of the work we've been doing is a club thing."
Frenkie De Jong saga is one of the most long-drawn soap operas involving our club along with his teammate Matthijs De Ligt and another midfielder Adrien Rabiot. According to a reputable Catalunya Radio journalist Oriol Domenech, the end is near and the 21-year-old who is expected to choose between Barcelona, Man City and Paris Saint-Germain 'today or tomorrow'.
The announcement of the said decision is likely to arrive later. Here is what the player himself has recently said in an interview: "I'm staying in Ajax for the winter, and in terms of my future, we'll make the decision at the end of the season. I've said this multiple times, and my teammates know I'll stay here this season."
Frenkie De Jong is one of the highly-anticipated transfers as the player is expected to become an integral part of Barcelona's midfielder for years to come. Many experts and fans have already claimed that the Dutchman's style fits Barcelona's system and he will not have any adaptation problems in the team in case he decides to join the Catalans.
