The Dutch midfielder was initially linked with a departure from the club during the 2022 summer transfer window, with Manchester United eyeing him as their first marquee signing under then-manager Erik ten Hag. However, after months of negotiations, the Red Devils eventually abandoned their pursuit and opted to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid instead.

Despite ongoing efforts to reduce debt, including the ongoing €1.5 billion renovation of Camp Nou, the club is still facing challenges complying with La Liga spending regulations.

While De Jong has expressed his desire to remain at Barcelona, recent reports from Spanish media SPORT suggest that if he were to even slightly entertain the idea of leaving, PSG would be ready to swoop in.

PSG is bracing for the potential departure of Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid, signaling a shift in their transfer strategy. Rather than splurging on aging stars like Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos, the club is now focusing on building a team around younger talent capable of long-term success. At 26, De Jong fits this profile, making him an attractive target for PSG.

With two years remaining on his Barcelona contract, De Jong retains considerable market value, making him one of the club’s most valuable assets. While current manager Xavi has praised De Jong’s contributions and sees him as a key figure in midfield, the looming prospect of his departure, coupled with Barcelona’s ability to cope in his absence due to recent injuries, is fueling ongoing speculation. If PSG presents an enticing offer, the rumor mill is likely to continue buzzing throughout the summer transfer window.
