I’m not afraid – Man United’s top transfer target, Frenkie opens up on future

Manchester United transfer target, Frenkie de Jong has said he wants to remain in Spain with Barcelona, but could not rule out a possible move to Old Trafford.

De Jong, who left Ajax with Erik ten Hag in charge in 2019, said he enjoyed working with the new Manchester United boss.

The Netherlands international midfielder has repeatedly been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.

Barcelona are understood to be willing to sell the midfielder and Manchester United are ready to buy, but the midfielder says he loves to remain at Nou Camp.

“I have enough confidence in myself [to be a success at Barcelona]. I am not afraid,” he told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.

“I recently spoke extensively with the trainer [Xavi]. That was a very good conversation.

“I will not go into that [the links to United]. Not even about other names or clubs.

“I understand that that link is made. That sum is not that difficult, it is logical.

“I have enjoyed working with Ten Hag at Ajax – and I can’t look into the future, of course. But I prefer to stay at Barcelona.

“As long as I don’t hear from the club management, I assume nothing is going on,” he said.
