Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano provides Frenkie de Jong latest

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano provides Frenkie de Jong latest -Follow up

Manchester United transfer target Frenkie de Jong still doesn’t want to leave Barcelona, reports journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: De Jong a big target

The Dutchman has emerged as arguably United’s biggest target of the summer, as Erik ten Hag looks to bring in one of his former Ajax players.

Midfield is clearly an area of the pitch that needs strengthening ahead of the new season and De Jong is seen as someone who can make a huge difference there, with Romano even reporting the clubs have agreed a deal for the transfer.

While Barca are willing to sell the 25-year-old this summer though, it doesn’t appear the player himself has any intention of leaving Catalonia.

The Latest: Midfielder doesn’t want move

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Romano revealed that De Jong is happy at his current club and still doesn’t want to move to United:

“As of today (Tuesday evening), I’m told that it’s still the same situation. He wants to continue at Barcelona. He loves the city, the club, everything about Barcelona, so he doesn’t want to leave. The situation is pretty clear on Frenkie’s side.”

Manchester United fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Do you sign an unhappy player?

This is a clear blow for United, considering their obvious interest in De Jong, but it still feels perfectly feasible that they could end up getting their man if Barca push him out of the door.

Is Maguire good enough for Manchester United?

Yes, he's just having a bad time!

No, he needs to go!

No, he needs to go!

That being said, there is then the risk of the Red Devils having an unhappy player in their ranks – someone who isn’t necessarily going to buy into Ten Hag’s plans, even though the pair know each other well.

For that reason, it could be wise for United to look at alternative options in the middle of the park, in order not to repeat previous transfer errors and sign players who don’t want to be there, with Paul Pogba recently hinting that he was rarely happy during his stay.
