Barcelona's plans for Luke de Jong have been revealed after the summer

An insight into the Spanish giant’s stance when it comes to the future of loaned Luc de Jong was provided after the campaign ended on Thursday.

Undoubtedly, the news will be met with widespread approval by the followers of the Blaugrana.

It comes amid a suggestion that fan favorite De Jong, who has made himself more beloved than ever to the club’s fan base thanks to a recent winner at Levante last weekend, may be in line for a long-term stay in Catalonia.

The Dutchman is, of course, in the midst of a season-long loan spell at the Camp Nou, from La Liga rivals Seville.

According to a report by Alfredo Martinez of Spanish outlet Diario Sport, those in a position of power at Barcelona are seriously considering a proposal to extend De Jong’s loan spell for another year.

The prospect of such a deal with Sevilla is currently seen as ‘difficult’, but there is still hope ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.

Turning attention to matters on the continent, the Blaugrana are set to welcome Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt at the Camp Nou, looking to qualify for the Europa League semi-finals.

The draw, as things stand, is on a knife edge, on the back of the hotly contested 1-1 draw in Germany this day last week.
