Frenkie de Jong has attracted interest from multiple clubs, with reports claiming Manchester City want to sign the Barcelona midfielder.

Since joining Barcelona from Ajax in 2019, De Jong has established himself as a key player in the Blaugrana’s midfield.
Despite the club’s recent struggles, the Dutchman has been able to keep up with his form and even improve it.

However, multiple rumours have linked De Jong with a move away from Barcelona in recent weeks, with a host of top clubs interested in the former Ajax star.

Despite the recent reports, SPORT has claimed De Jong has no intention of leaving Barcelona. According to the Spanish source, the Dutchman is happy at the club and is well-settled in Barcelona.

However, Barca’s financial problems might still persuade them to cash out on the young midfielder. Manchester City are eager to sign De Jong as they are looking to find a long-term successor to Fernandinho.

De Jong chose the Catalans over Man City back in 2019, but Pep Guardiola has retained his interest in him. A transfer will also depend on Barca’s plans for the January window. If the club decide to make a move for Karim Adeyemi, they might sell a major star to raise funds.
