Manchester United may reportedly be facing a huge blow in the transfer market.

According to Fabrizio Romano via his official Twitter account, Man Utd’s long-term target Frenkie de Jong has no intention of leaving Barcelona, with the deal now described as “stalling”, despite the Red Devils spending the last few weeks working on trying to persuade the Netherlands international to make the move to Old Trafford.

It will be interesting to see if things can still turn around after this blow, but it’s surely time for United to explore alternatives to De Jong.

There’s no doubt the player could have been a fine fit for Erik ten Hag’s side, but there must also be other decent alternatives out there who could provide MUFC with superior options to the likes of Scott McTominay and Fred.
