‘Shocked’ Frenkie de Jong feels ‘comforted’ by Manchester United stance 

According to AS, Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong has acknowledged the determined transfer approach from Manchester United. 

The 25-year-old midfielder has made 46 appearances for Xavi Hernandez’s team this season, appearing in all competitions and contributing to five assists and four goals. The Barcelona supporters have not always been won over by the Dutchman’s on-field accomplishments, despite his performances.

Now it is believed that the Dutchman was shocked and heartbroken to hear that Barcelona wants to offload him as he believes he is not much of a problem for the cash-stricken team.

On the other hand, De Jong feels ‘comforted’ to know that Manchester United wants him to become a pivotal point in the team’s rebuild under Eric Ten Hag.  

Frenkie de Jong’s future at Manchester United has been unclear for many months, but at the moment, his change of intention is the first audible indication that a transfer may be on the horizon after all.

However, in any case, the Red Devils might have to offer an improved wage deal than the €11m per year figure he currently earns at Barcelona. 

Frenkie de Jong moved to Barcelona from Ajax in 2019 and has since shown himself at Camp Nou. With the Blaugrana, the Dutch superstar frequently displayed his talent and has the potential to become one of the best midfielders in the world.

The player’s desire to move to a specific club will always go a long way in sealing a deal, and it appears as if De Jong has finally made up his mind on one. The two teams have yet to come to an agreement on a deal for the player and are still in negotiation.

As the skilled midfielder constantly being asked to do everything on the field, he has occasionally been a victim of his own talent at Barcelona. For some midfielders, what can be regarded as a strong performance is viewed as an average one by the Dutchman.

A player’s success is usually hampered by unreasonable expectations, but one guy at Ajax was able to make de Jong live up to them: Erik ten Hag. Can he repeat it at Man United? Considering how closely we have been associated with him, he must believe this.

Frenkie de Jong must be acquired at any cost, and Manchester United must make every effort possible. He is a guy we can never go wrong with, and he might just be the one to start the ten Hag era off right.
