Frenkie de Jong does not want to leave Barcelona and join Man United this summer, according to Dutch legend Ronald Koeman.

The Netherlands international has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer following the appointment of Erik ten Hag, who is reportedly keen to be reunited with his former Ajax midfielder.

Recent reports have even claimed De Jong has made a U-turn and is now willing to join the Red Devils, having previously been adamant he has no reason to leave the Nou Camp.

It has also been claimed that Barcelona are very much open to the idea of letting him leave as they are in need of funds due to their ongoing financial issues – and would accept a fee of £60M for the midfielder

Man United are hopeful of signing the midfielder and want to get the deal wrapped up this week – bur according to Koeman – the gifted midfielder does not want to make the move to Manchester

“The only thing I know is that Frenkie wants to continue at Barca,” Koeman told Esport 3.

“A couple of days ago he told me he wanted to continue. What I don’t know is if Barca wants to sell him or needs money because he is one of the few players for whom they can get a good amount.

“For me, De Jong is a great player for Barca.”

Why would Man United want to sign a player that doesnt want to leave Barcelona? they would just be getting another player that does not want to be at the club

The United board are spending all this time chasing the player – when they could be trying to sign stars that actually want to come to the Premier League and put on that Red Devils shirt every week

His possible move could be a mistake for the club – not matter how good he is

Eriksen sent message –

Christian Eriksen has been advised to avoid the pressures that come with being a Man United player to have an easy life.

Eriksen signed for the Bees in January and proved his fitness as well as his quality with one goal and four assists for the club which helped keep them in the Premier League last season

But The midfielder, 30, is available on a free transfer with his Brentford contract expired-and even though they have offered the star a contract to stay – he wants to make a bigger move

And now Man United are looking to take advantage of his contract situation by giving the Danish international a deal, reports have claimed – as Erik Ten Hag is a massive fan of the creative midfielder.

However – Eriksen has been told to snub a move to Man United – The tip came from Glen Johnson who told GGrecon: “There are different questions. I think it’s all about Eriksen, how he feels, what he wants to do in life now.

“He just needs to be happy. Does he need the pressure of Manchester United? I’m not so sure.

“Let’s just say Eriksen’s 100% fit and well: I think he would go to Manchester United because he’d have the energy to put up with the pressure.

“It’s a fantastic football club and you’re going to play with some world class players. As long as he’s strong enough to do it, then I think he’d pick that. The only question is is where his head’s at and what he wants out of it.”

“In terms of being a player, he’s one of the best midfielders the Premier League has ever seen.

“But if any of us had been through what he has been through, if that’s me then I’m thinking ‘sod it, I’m just going to enjoy the rest of my life and chill out.’”
