Bayern Munich have not lost interest in Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, but new manager Hansi Flick has decided to keep the doors closed on his potential exit this season, claims a report from SPORT.

De Jong’s future at Barcelona has been a hot topic for discussion as despite him making it clear that he has no plans to leave this summer, his name keeps popping up in major transfer discussions. 

This time, Bayern Munich’s interest in de Jong has once again been brought up. 

It seemed that Bayern had moved on from this idea a little over a month ago but with the arrival of Vincent Kompany, the German club is reconsidering the need to strengthen their midfield with the Dutch player.

The outlet reports that although Bayern Munich are aware of the fact that Flick will not sanction this move, they continue to remain hopeful. As such, Flick sees de Jong as a pivotal member of his rebuilding.

For months, de Jong’s future has been uncertain. During this time, Barcelona have tried to get him to adjust his contract financially and extend his commitment to the club beyond 2026. 

However, the midfielder’s response has always been the same: he does not want to alter his contract financially or negotiate an extension.

This stance has caught the attention of top clubs in the Premier League and Bayern Munich. While Barcelona have taken a wait-and-see approach regarding possible transfer offers, de Jong has repeatedly stated that he is happy at Barcelona and does not want to leave.

Manchester United reportedly gave up on trying to sign de Jong a long time ago, and PSG and Bayern Munich have also grown tired of waiting for a positive response from him. 

As it turns out, though, the surprise comes from new coach Kompany, who has requested to revisit the possibility of his signing, a topic that seemed to be off the table.
