According to Diario Sport’s Albert Masnou (4 stars), Frenkie de Jong is not necessarily against the idea of leaving Barcelona.
However, he doesn’t want to move to Manchester United. His agent, Ali Dursun, has even told the Red Devils’ executives in a personal meeting to stop pursuing the midfielder because he is not interested.
As for the Catalans, they have told De Jong to leave and have even set a deadline for him to join United.
Top source Fabrizio Romano (5 stars) reports that Frenkie’s priority remains to continue at Barca. However, Man United are not giving up as they already have an agreement with Barca.
Erik ten Hag has made it a priority to sign the Dutch star as he feels the 26-year-old is the ideal man to lead his midfield play for the next season.
