 Barcelona will have to make decisions regarding the personnel situation on their attack.

Luuk de Jong spent six memorable months at Barcelona. On loan at the end of the summer transfer window to replace Antoine Griezmann, the Dutchman’s signing has been met with a lot of criticism from fans.

During the first half of the season, the striker looked completely out of place at the Nou Camp. It has led to speculation about his future, with the Blaugrana ready to part ways with the striker born in 1990.

However, things turned for the better for De Jong in the new year. The 31-year-old has scored in each of three appearances in 2022 and has earned praise from coach Xavi Hernandez for his attitude. Rumors about his future have also been quieted down.

 De Jong wants to stay at Barca.

Now, the Dutch player has come out on his own and spoke out about this issue, and he shared that he wants to continue to stick with Barca. As quoted by Mundo Deportivo, De Jong stated:

“We’ve been with my family for half a year in Barcelona, I don’t want to move again .”

De Jong’s statement more or less confused Barca when the club wanted a new striker. With Barca looking for a new striker, De Jong’s playing frequency will be affected. However, De Jong insists he is fine about it and can still prove his worth.
