Rumors indicate a possible transfer of Frenkie de Jong a Man Utd, but Barcelona He has not received any formal proposal to retain the services of the Dutch midfielder. According to Mundo Deportivo, the ‘culés’ are open to negotiating depending on the economic amount that the ‘red devils’ put on the table to take the player.
The arrival of Erik Ten Hag as the new manager of Manchester United has resonated with the players of the Netherlands national team and much more with those who were managed by him at Ajax. De Jong is one of them and at Old Trafford they seem to have no intention of sending a formal offer for the player.
According to ‘Mundo Deportivo’, the Barça management has not seen any formal proposal not only from the English, but from any other entity. Joan Laporta and those close to him are open to negotiating for the Dutchman, but they need some initial terms to be reached on which to talk with their interlocutors first.
For Xavi Hernández, the midfielder is not a latent exit option either because his sale is not taken as a priority. The Barcelona team is working to find out if he continues and they can have him in their plans. If he completes his departure, he could give the team an economic boost.
It should also be borne in mind that, in the event that Frenkie’s possible departure advances, it would not be surprising if his coach interceded to prevent it, since he has already acknowledged in several press conferences that he considers him a very useful footballer. Add to that how well it fits into the ‘tiki-taka’ style of play.
In the next few days, the future of the player could be defined who, if he arrived at Manchester United, would meet again with the coach who saw him achieve success with Ajax. The midfielder’s plans are also based on continuity to reach the Qatar 2022 World Cup with the Netherlands with the pace of competition.
