According to Cadena SER, a highly reliable Spanish outlet, Frenkie de Jong is ‘refusing to quit’ Barcelona even as talks continue with Manchester United.
Earlier this Saturday, another outlet Sport reported that Frenkie has informed his agent that moving to Old Trafford would be a ‘backwards step’ due to our troubles on the field last season.
And now, it appears Frenkie has no desire to leave Camp Nou, even if it means reuniting with Erik ten Hag.
De Jong has four years left on his current contract and appears to be set on fighting for his place under Xavi.
The Red Devils, meanwhile, have spent the majority of the window so far trying to convince him to change his mind.
Ten Hag even reportedly spoke to De Jong personally but for now, it’s high time United look at other targets and not waste more time.
