Amid all the speculations surrounding the future of Frenkie de Jong, reputed journalist Helena Condis has offered respite to the Barcelona fans, suggesting the player has no intention to move away from Camp Nou this summer.
Condis claims de Jong has recently bought a new house in Barcelona with his girlfriend. He does not want to leave the city at any cost and feels rather embarrassed by the noise around his future.
The report comes at a time when Barcelona the Dutchman has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United, with Erik ten Hag reportedly seeking a reunion at Old Trafford.
While Barça have appeared quite apprehensive about selling their prized defensive unit, they have reportedly put a €100 million price tag on the player, with Xavi Hernandez increasingly considering the possibility of signing Bernardo Silva as his replacement.
Frenkie de Jong suspects Barcelona have already moved him to the transfer list, leaving the midfielder disappointed with the management, even though he remains firm on staying at Camp Nou.
The Dutchman is convinced of Xavi’s project and wants to become a central part of the midfield in the years to come, helping Barcelona restore its former glory.
But with the club appearing apprehensive over his role in the first team and in the future, it remains to be seen whether it would influence the midfielder to consider a potential exit in the summer transfer window.
Manchester United are among the clubs linked with a move for the former Ajax starlet, should he look to jump and become a part of his former coach’s ten Hag’s project at Old Trafford next season.
