De Jong makes final decision on Manchester United bid

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has made a decision regarding Manchester United’s offer to join him this summer, according to Spanish media reports.

Radio Cadena Ser reported that De Jong had told Manchester United officials that he would not join the team this summer.

She also added that the Dutch player had told his Barcelona colleagues that he was staying with the team and would not leave.

Barcelona have reached an agreement with Manchester United for the Dutch player, under which United agreed to pay Barcelona €75m in addition to €10m for De Jong.

However, De Jong, whose contract with Barcelona has been extended until June 2026, has delayed the completion of his move to Manchester United due to an overdue financial debt to Barça of 18 million euros.

The Dutchman has played 140 games for Barcelona in various competitions since joining the Catalan team from Dutch club Ajax Amsterdam in 2019 for €75m.
