Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong continues to stare at an uncertain future at Camp Nou despite his repeated insistence that he wishes to stay put at the club.
The 25-year-old has been a permanent fixture in the middle of the park since his arrival and continues to be a key player for Xavi, despite a brief period when he appeared unsettled after the sacking of compatriot Ronald Koeman.
However, considering the club’s current financial situation, Barcelona are open to offers for the Netherlands international. Manchester United have been linked heavily with a move for de Jong, with Mundo Deportivo claiming that the Red Devils are pushing hard to sign him.
Talks between the two clubs are ongoing and the Premier League giants are confident of getting their man, who has emerged as a priority target following the appointment of Erik ten Hag as their new manager.
However, de Jong is not sold on a move to Manchester United as they will not be participating in the UEFA Champions League for the upcoming campaign.
Amidst the links with the Red Devils, more clubs are keeping a close watch on the situation. Indeed, as per the report, Paris Saint-Germain are interested in de Jong and monitoring the midfielder’s current situation at the club.
At the same time, Bayern Munich are another club are looking at the Netherlands international, while they are also keeping a close eye on the contract situation of another Barcelona midfielder in Gavi.
Manchester City, too, are interested in Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong, and with Barcelona eyeing Bernardo Silva as a potential replacement for the Dutchman, there is a possibility of the two clubs entering a swap arrangement.
Barcelona are hoping to recoup most of the €86 million that they paid Ajax to sign him back in 2019, but Manchester United are confident of striking a deal for €60 million.
But with several other clubs interested, it remains to be seen where the Netherlands international ends up at the end of the summer transfer window.
