Frenkie de Jong needs to make a decision about his future. He could choose to stay at Barcelona , he could also choose to leave for Manchester United .
De Jong’s situation is somewhat complicated and has not yet come to light after several weeks have passed. Since the beginning of the transfer market, De Jong has been linked with Manchester United.
Reportedly, Erik ten Hag asked the club to prioritize the hunt for De Jong. Ten Hag already knows the Dutch midfielder very well.
Barcelona welcomes MU’s interest. They are ready to sell as long as the price is right. The problem is, De Jong is not sure to leave Camp Nou.
Barca need money, De Jong’s dream lasts
De Jong wants to stay at Barcelona, but the situation is not that easy. He did not seem to fit the style of play that Xavi asked for. Plus, the club needs the money to sell De Jong.
De Jong’s situation is also being monitored by Alvaro Montero, a Spanish football analyst. According to him, De Jong’s position is not easy.
In recent weeks Barca have told De Jong that they need money and selling him is a good option,” Montero said on
“Barcelona and Xavi know that De Jong wants to stay, his dream is to play for Barcelona. However, United called and Erik ten Hag knows him well.”
Depends on De Jong
Although the situation is still floating, Montero insists that De Jong to MU is very possible. Actually the decision is in the hands of De Jong himself, not in the negotiations between MU and Barca.
“It’s not just an option, it’s more than possible that De Jong ends up at Man United. It depends on himself,” continued Montero.
“If he wants to stay, Barcelona and Xavi feel there is no other option, he will stay. If he opens the exit door, Man United will be his goal,” he said.
