Man United suffer bitter blow in race to sign Barcelona’s Frenkie De Jong

Posted by

Manchester United could end up missing out on their number one summer transfer target.

That’s according to a recent report from Spanish outlet Cadena SER, who claim midfielder Frenkie De Jong is refusing to quit Barcelona.

Understood to be at the very top of Erik ten Hag’s summer wishlist, De Jong’s proposed move to Old Trafford has been viewed as integral to how the beginning of the Dutchman’s reign will play out.

However, with talks continuing for days and no real progress yet to be made, the United faithful have been left to sweat on the Netherlands international’s final decision, and these latest reports suggest the playmaker may have turned down the chance to move to the Premier League.

Since joining Barcelona from Ajax back in 2019, De Jong, who has four years left on his deal at the Nou Camp, has gone on to feature in 138 matches, in all competitions, directly contributing to 29 goals along the way.
