Frenkie de Jong’s transfer to Old Trafford could happen if Barcelona and Manchester United can agree on a price.

Ronald Koeman, the former Barcelona manager, claims that Frenkie de Jong, a target for Manchester United, has informed him that he does not intend to leave the Nou Camp this summer. The cash-strapped Catalans and United are hoping to reach a deal soon to transfer the Netherlands international.

Frenkie De Jong Wants To Play Next Season

Erik ten Hag’s rebuild has identified De Jong, 25, as a top target, and negotiations with the playmaker are moving forward. Along with a new center-back and goalkeeper to replace Dean Henderson, who will be loaned to Nottingham Forest, United also wants to acquire free agent Christian Eriksen.

Despite the fact that De Jong appears content at the Nou Camp, Barcelona is in serious financial trouble, and the Dutchman is one of their most marketable commodities. The need for Barcelona to keep De Jong has diminished with the emergence of La Masia graduates Pedri and Gavi in the starting midfield.

De Jong transferred from Ajax to Barcelona in 2019, and Koeman was in charge of the Netherlands at the time. A year later, when he was named to the Nou Camp bench, he took De Jong with him.

The 59-year-old has since left that post, but he and De Jong will work together once again after the World Cup in Qatar when he takes over for former United manager Louis van Gaal as head coach.

“All I know is that Frenkie wants to stay with Barca,” Koeman said in reference to the most recent Vaques Sagrades episode. He stated that a few days ago. But given that Barca needs money, I’m not sure if they should trade him or even if they want to.

He is one of those people for whom a great amount of money can be asked.”

Ronald Koeman, a Dutch professional football manager, and the former player were most recently in charge of La Liga team Barcelona (born March 21, 1963). He is the former Dutch international Martin Koeman’s son and former international teammate Erwin Koeman’s younger brother. 

Although Koeman was equally well-known for his goal-scoring, long-range shooting, and accuracy from free-kicks and penalties, he was also capable of playing as a defender and a midfielder. He frequently played as a sweeper.
