Frenkie de Jong said joining Manchester United would be best for his career

Frenkie de Jong-Barcelona

In previous reports, Manchester United are interested in Barcelona’s midfielder, with the Spanish side seeking £72 million (85 m Euros). However, Frenkie de Jong is still hoping to stay with his Barca team. 

Barcelona are having a tough time this transfer season in terms of finances. Perhaps selling is the best option for Barca. 

De Jong shines after his dominant display in midfield as the Netherlands beat Belgium 4-1. 

According to United in focus, the journalist and Dutch football show discussed De Jong’s transfer status. 

Derksen said, via FCUpdate: “Ten Hag knows what his strong points are. That’s where [United] he must come to develop.”

Dutch analyst Jan van Halst was quoted by Voetball Primeur: “This is the Frenkie de Jong of Ajax, as we know him.

“We’ve hardly seen that at Barcelona. If you buy him, put him in this position. If you still have Sergio Busquets, then you shouldn’t buy him.”

The reports said De Jong finds his role in the Dutch side suits him better than the one he performs at Barcelona. Meanwhile, Given the excellent relationship of working together at Ajax, Erik Ten Hag will surely know where to place De Jong at Old Trafford.
