Breaking: Frenkie de Jong Willing To Join Another Premier League Club, Set To Snub Man United
According to Albert Masnou of Diario Sport, a tier-two source, Frenkie de Jong would prefer moving to London for Chelsea instead of joining Manchester United.
As a result, the Red Devils are ‘beginning to rule out’ a transfer for De Jong from Barcelona this summer.
Both sides have finally reached an agreement on a deal worth €75 million plus €10 million in add-ons. However, Frenkie’s stance has always been to continue fighting for his place at Camp Nou.
That’s not all – it’s become clear that Barca are trying to force him out to avoid paying the €17 million they owe him in unpaid wages.
