According to a report on Caught Offside, Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong is upset with Barcelona amid interest from Manchester United.

New Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag wants to reunite with De Jong at Manchester United as part of his squad overhaul following Manchester United’s disappointing season.

De Jong shone under Ten Hag at Ajax until joining Barcelona in 2019, but it seems he’s not exactly keen on the prospect of leaving the Catalan giants.

The report on Caught Offside claims De Jong is upset with latest developments over his future as he’s not looking to leave, but feels as though he’s being put on the market by the club.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out, but the Red Devils would surely do well to look for an alternative in midfield if De Jong isn’t sold on joining.

Meanwhile, De Jong has already revealed his position to Manchester United ahead of a summer move to Old Trafford.

According to De Jong, he is at his very best when he can often get on the ball and make things happen.

He told The Guardian : “I don’t necessarily have one position where I really want to play, but I think I’m at my best if I’m in a role where I can often touch the ball.”
