Barcelona are reportedly considering selling Frenkie De Jong during the January transfer widow in order to fund a move for Manchester City attacker Raheem Sterling.
The Catalan giants are seemingly determined to bring Raheem Sterling to Camp Nou at the start of 2022 but will struggle to afford the England international due to their financial issues.
Barcelona will have to move players on in the winter window in order to make new signing, and according the sun, Frenkie De Jong could be allowed to leave the club.
The report claims that Barcelona will struggle to afford Raheem Sterling on loan due to his £300,000-a-week wage, but Frenkie De Jong's exit would make space in the budget.
De Jong has made 106 appearances for Barcelona since arriving from Ajax in 2019, contributing 9 goals and 14 assists in the process.
The 24-year-old has again been an important player for the LA Liga giants this team but will find himself in battle for a starting role when Pedri returns to fitness, with Gavi emerging as a key player for the club and Sergio Busquets remaining a key figure in midfield.
