Where will Frenkie de Jong play next season? A few days ago, the Catalan journalist Gerard Romero revealed that the Dutch media was very close to being transferred to Manchester United by Barça, looking for cash and “fair play” to be able to sign new players for next season. If the interest of the English club is real, Frenkie de Jong is not very hot at the idea of leaving Barcelona, which he confirmed this Tuesday to the Dutch daily AD.
“If there was anything concrete, I would have heard it from the management of FC Barcelona. If I was called by another club? I can’t say, but I’d rather stay in Barcelona “said the Dutch midfielder, not surprised by the rumor Manchester United: “It’s a logical connection, given my past with Erik ten Hag. But that’s all: the connection is logical, anyone can do it. If I’ve had contact with Ten Hag? I can’t do anything. say about it. “
“FC Barcelona has always been the club of my dreams”
Disappointed by his first three seasons in Barcelona – “I had imagined more” -, Frenkie de Jong says he has no regrets about choosing Barça three years ago: “We have to be critical of our record. But it’s not like I regret my choice, certainly not. FC Barcelona have always been the club of my dreams, from a young age. And that’s always the case. . “
While the 25-year-old’s intentions are clear, his future remains uncertain. Barça must sell players in order to extend some players and recruit others, as confirmed this morning by Javier Tebas, the president of LaLiga. Frenkie de Jong is one of Barça’s most bankable players and no one can guarantee he will be there again next season. In addition to MU, the PSG is also often cited in this case.
