Man Utd and Chelsea target Frenkie de Jong 'at WAR with agent over transfer decision after blocking Old Trafford switch' | The Sun

BARCELONA star Frenkie de Jong disagrees with his agent about his future amid interest from Manchester United and Chelsea, reports suggest.

De Jong, 25, has been linked with a move away from cash-strapped Barca this summer and the Premier League could be his nextdestination.


According to Sport, however, the midfielder is keen to stay at the Nou Camp even on a reduced salary because he believes in the club's sporting project.
