Former Barcelona player and manager Ronald Koeman revealed in an interview saying Frenkie De Jong has no intention of leaving Barcelona.

Since the arrival of Erik Ten Hag at Manchester United they are looking to sign Frenkie De Jong from FC Barcelona. However, Manchester United are chasing Frenkie De Jong for few weeks now.

Despite Manchester United’s interest Ronald Koeman told TV3: “The only thing I know from Frenkie is that he wants to stay at Barca,”

“In fact, a couple of days ago he said that: ‘I want to stay at Barca.’ But I don’t know if Barca want to sell Frenkie de Jong or if they just need the money because I think he is one of the few players they have that has such a high price.”

Ronald Koeman has coached Frenkie De Jong in the Dutch National team as well as at Barcelona. Moreover, he gave De Jong an important role in the midfield. He also used him as a centre-back in his time at the Camp Nou due to defensive crisis.
