Frenkie de Jong enjoyed a wakeboarding session in Spain with this other half as his move to Chelsea draws near.
The Barcelona star has been the subject of a massive, complicated saga this summer window, with Manchester United and the Blues thought to be keen on bringing him in. The Sun reports that, although he would rather stay with his current club, he is owed some £14million in deferred wages.
As such, Barcelona are now threatening legal action unless he agrees to take on a huge pay cut. This is ongoing while Chelsea and United circle in the hope of nabbing the midfielder.

Still, he looked like he didn't have a care in the world as he took to the sea with his fiancee Mikky Kiemeney in Barcelona. A recent Instagram story showed the star surfing while being pulled along by a high-speed boat.
Another snap showed the Dutchman using just one hand to steer, as he posed for the camera.
Which club will De Jong end up at? Let us know in the comments section below.
With the La Liga campaign coming up, it’s crunch time for De Jong and his future. Barcelona’s financial woes mean they need to cut off a string of players to ensure they can register their new squad members and get under the wage threshold.
It means until De Jong departs, they can’t register new signings such as Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie.
Erik ten Hag wants to reunite with the player and bring him to Old Trafford – but in a twist of fate, the Blues have emerged as a very viable alternative club. Reports have suggested that Chelsea are a more realistic prospect than United this window despite the northwest side vying for the player since Ten Hag joined up.
It seems that United are now pressing ahead with Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, whose mother is locked in negotiations with the club.
