Breaking: President Laporta Finally Reveals If Frenkie de Jong Would Still Join Manchester United

When asked if Frenkie de Jong was offered to Chelsea during an interview with CBS Golazo, Barcelona president Joan Laporta replied: “No, no, no.

“We [himself and club owner Todd Boehly] had a very nice dinner in Barcelona and we talked in general about football. He is a very successful businessman.

“He is involved in sport with the Lakers and Dodgers and now with Chelsea. He looks like a man who knows what he wants to do and it was a very nice dinner.”

Laporta was then asked about De Jong joining Manchester United and he said: “In football, you never know. I can’t say categorically.

“It all depends on the different parties. But in principle, I can say there is a strong possibility he stays, and I can say as president I will do my best for him to stay at Barcelona.

He added: “The first thing to say is we want Frenkie to stay at Barcelona. We love the player and him as a human being.

“I want him to stay at Barcelona. He’s a high-quality player and a good guy. I also know that he wants to stay.”

Despite all of Laporta’s sweet words, he’s made no mention of why the deal is in limbo. And that is because of the £17 million in unpaid wages they owe Frenkie.

Our hopes of signing the 25-year-old look grim but we will have to wait and watch.
