There is still no news or confirmation on the situation regarding Sutch midfielder Frenkie DeJong. He seems adamant that he wants to stay with the club, had been suggested that Xavi asked the player to take a massive drop in his salary if he wanted to remain at the Spotify Camp Nou.
Mystery also surrounds the ‘signing’ from Chelsea of Cesar Azpilicueta, as no full confirmation of this deal has been given yet.
