The rumor about Manchester United Transfer News De Jong is going to come to an end – Recently, the paparazzi caught Frenkie de Jong flying to London just three days before the summer transfer window closed. Fans immediately sparked speculation about the future of the Dutch midfielder.
De Jong didn’t join Manchester United and Chelsea
Both media and fans have eyes a lot on the transfer deal around midfielder Frenkie de Jong h during the summer transfer window. MU and Chelsea are still the two teams that pay the most attention to the 25-year-old midfielder.
Even the two giants of England reached agreements to sign a deal with Barcelona a few weeks ago, but salary issues have prevented the Dutchman from leaving.
Recently, reporters suddenly caught sight of De Jong preparing to fly to London with his girlfriend, it is still unclear what the purpose of the former Ajax midfielder’s flight is, but certainly the movements of the bridge. This player cannot avoid speculation about De Jong coming to England to negotiate a contract.
However, the speculations were immediately extinguished when transfer expert Fabrizio Romano confirmed that De Jong came to London only to travel and attend the wedding of his close friend Donny Van de Beek. He didn’t do anything with the transfer.
So, De Jong won’t belong to Manchester United and Chelsea as well.
After spending a whopping £227 million this season, Manchester United looks set to wrap up their summer transfer business with the loan signing of Martin Dubravka.
- The £85 million Antony deal is anticipated to close.
- De Jong has agreed not to join this summer.
- Dubravka comes from Newcastle on loan
Why De Jong didn’t join the Red Devils?
Previously, Man United had reached an agreement on a transfer fee with Barcelona for De Jong (85 million euros), but this player had insistently refused because the “Red Devils” did not have Champions League tickets.
De Jong is one of the top midfielders in the world, so playing in the Champions League seems a must. In recent years, Man United still attracted many stars despite not having tickets to UCL. For example, Angel Di Maria, Paul Pogba, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. However, De Jong is different.
Currently, the attraction of Man United has decreased significantly, at least for De Jong. If forced to leave Barca, the 25-year-old midfielder only prioritizes the club that has the ability to compete for titles, especially the Champions League. That is the biggest disadvantage of the “Red Devils”, and vice versa for Chelsea.
Furthermore, the unrest at Barca also gave Man United an impasse over the purchase of De Jong. Although an agreement has been reached to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, Ten Hag still wants at least one more striker.
