. Spanish Journalist Gerard Romero has claimed that a De Jong sale next week is the target of the club and is in fact likely at this stage. He, alongside The Times' Paul Hirst, have name-checked Chelsea as the most likely next destination for the Dutchman, despite Manchester United already having a deal agreed with Barcelona. The ongoing negotiations between the two sides for Marcos Alonso means that the process can be sped up significantly with both Todd Boehly and Joan Laporta in communication with each other. Although Romero did reiterate with the situation surrounding the midfielder that this is a feeling of his and therefore 'nothing is still 100%' done as of today. Can Chelsea really get a deal for the 25-year-old done next week? With Wesley Fofana negotiations the main focus of Boehly currently, it's difficult to envisage a situation whereby both the Leicester defender and Barca midfielder are 'done deals' by the end of next week but who knows, anything in football can happen. Encouragingly though, the fact that Chelsea are being name-checked a lot more frequently than Man United now indicates that this 'hijack' is definitely possible. Chelsea fans- Can you see a situation where Wesley Fofana and Frenkie de Jong transfers are 'done deals' by the end of next week or is that too unrealistic?
