Chelsea offer 40 million euros for Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong - SPORT
De Jong is one of the players Barcelona have with the highest market value. The Dutch midfielder is young and liked in the European market, while Pedri, Gavi and Nico have burst onto the scene and are shining. Barcelona hope he can take a step forward in what’s left of the season but if not, they are not ruling out selling him next summer. It would help them raise the money they want to sign Erling Haaland.

Ronald Araujo: Yes to Barcelona, but with conditions - SPORT

Araujo is clearly a key player for Barcelona and in the years ahead.
