‘Lower your salary, b****’ – Barcelona fans appear to be yelling abuse at Frenkie de Jong as they arrive at the training ground amid pay cut saga

Frenkie de Jong appears to have become the second Barcelona player in a week to receive a hostile reception from the club’s fans.

This time however, the fans seem to be going beyond the Nou Camp, telling the midfielder exactly what they think of him outside of their training ground.

De Jong owes Barcelona £17m in deferred pay

In footage posted to Twitter, the Manchester United and Chelsea transfer target was seen arriving at Barca’s facilities in his car.

But he didn’t get a very warm reception from the fans watching.

“Serious insults to Frenkie de Jong upon his arrival at Sports City,” the post read.

Translated from Catalan, we hear the fans watching shouting: “Lower your salary, b****!”

The Dutch star has reportedly received £17million in salary from his club and has also been asked to take a pay cut as the La Liga giants are deep in debt.

But Jong has reportedly rejected the option of seeing his salary cut, angering Barcelona fans.

Any upset Barcelona fan could be in for rejoicing, with Chelsea close to finalizing a deal to sign De Jong.

talkSPORT’s Alex Crook adds that an update on the player’s future could be coming in the next 24 hours.

The incident outside Sports City comes just days after Barca striker Martin Braithwaite was booed by his own fans at Camp Nou as he walked onto the pitch ahead of the Barcelona friendly. Joan Gamper Trophy against Mexican team Pumas UNAM on Sunday.

Like De Jong, Braithwaite also refused to take a pay cut.
