Frenkie De Jong who has been linked with going to Manchester United could now be sold to Manchester City in swap deal. Frenkie De Jong however is not interested in going to any club. His desire is to stay in Camp Nou with Barcelona.
Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag has handed a boost in the pursuit for Frenkie De Jong. Barcelona and Manchester United were certainly at the verge of finalizing the contract which could have worth €86m (£69m).
Manchester City have proven to now be obstacle and the stumbling block in Manchester United’s way. Manchester City have the upper hand in the race for De Jong because they have replacement for him Bernardo Silva.
