Bayern Munich willing to offer up to $100M for Barca's Frenkie de Jong

Barca is facing financial difficulties and has put De Jong on the transfer market as their only sellable asset.

Manchester United made an €85 million bid for De Jong, but he refused to leave as he desires to succeed under Xavi Hernandez and play Champions League football.

Bayern is reportedly ready to test Barca's resolve on De Jong and might raise their bid to €90 million.

De Jong is an essential player for Barca and his recent absence due to injury showed how badly his impact is missed.

Barca would still be foolish to let go of De Jong as they won't find a like-for-like replacement with the money they receive.

Barca needs to balance financial fair play by shaving €200 million from the wage bill.
