Manchester United rejected by Frenkie de Jong
DBasia.news – It seems that the Red Devils have to put aside their dreams of being able to bring in Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona. The player emphatically turned down the opportunity to move to Manchester United.
De Jong has been Manchester United’s main target since last summer. His presence is needed by Erik ten Hag, who has been manager of the Red Devils.
However, Manchester United’s efforts to bring in De Jong did not produce results. The Dutch midfielder remains in Barcelona.
Manchester United are rumored to be trying to hijack De Jong again this summer. The British giant wants to take advantage of Barcelona’s financial crisis.
But the transfer market has not been officially opened, De Jong has firmly refused. He refuses to leave Barcelona.
“I don’t think so (moving to Manchester United). You never know the future, but I’m happy at Barcelona,” De Jong said after the match against Madrid.
Similar reasons have been conveyed by De Jong since last summer. Barcelona is his dream club.
Moreover, De Jong is also one of Xavi Hernandez’s mainstays in midfield. His role was prominent when Barcelona beat Madrid with a score of 2-1.
“A lot has changed for me since the summer. I played almost every game, and I feel good,” he added.
“I am a better player now than when I joined Barça.”
Manchester United seems to have to find another target to strengthen their midfield this summer. Their chances of obtaining De Jong is unlikely.
