Frenkie de Jong Opens Up on Manchester United Transfer Saga and Discusses Barcelona Future
Barcelona, Spain - In an exclusive interview, Dutch professional footballer Frenkie de Jong has opened up about last summer's Manchester United transfer saga and has spoken out on his future with FC Barcelona amid continued interest from Old Trafford.
In 2019, De Jong made a high-profile move from Ajax to Barcelona for a reported fee of €75 million. However, it was widely reported that Manchester United was also interested in acquiring the talented midfielder. De Jong has now revealed some details about the negotiations that took place during that period.
"I was aware of the interest from Manchester United, but my heart was set on joining Barcelona," De Jong said. "I had some conversations with my agent and the clubs, but in the end, I felt that Barcelona was the best choice for my career."
Since joining Barcelona, De Jong has established himself as a key player for the Catalan club. However, recent reports have suggested that Manchester United remains interested in the Dutch international and could make a move for him in the upcoming transfer window.
When asked about the possibility of a future move to Old Trafford, De Jong was diplomatic in his response. "I am very happy at Barcelona, and I am focused on helping the team achieve success," he said. "However, in football, you never know what the future holds. I am not ruling out any possibilities, but for now, my commitment is to Barcelona."
De Jong's comments come at a time when Barcelona is going through a transitional period both on and off the field. With the recent departure of Lionel Messi to Paris Saint-Germain and the club's well-documented financial difficulties, there have been suggestions that some of the team's top players could be sold to balance the books.
However, De Jong has reiterated his desire to stay at the club and help them return to the pinnacle of European football. "I am aware of the challenges the club is facing, but I believe in the project and the players we have," he said. "I am confident that we can overcome these difficulties and bring success back to Barcelona."
In conclusion, while Frenkie de Jong has acknowledged the interest from Manchester United, he has made it clear that his current focus is on his career at Barcelona. However, with the ever-changing landscape of football, it remains to be seen what the future holds for the talented Dutch midfielder.
