Transfer Blow As Frankie De Jong Debunks United Move And Talks
Having being majorly linked with a move to Old Trafford, Frankie De has come clean to say that all are just rumours, that he and his club don’t know anything about United talks.
He said: “I don’t want to talk about rumors anymore. I feel good in Barcelona. Contacts? There is no agreement or anything official.”
When asked what he wants, Frenkie de Jong said: “Well.. I prefer to stay at Barcelona. I said this before, Barcelona is the club of my dreams ever since I was little.” And if other clubs call, then you will take the call? “Well, yes. But you always do that.”
Frenkie: “Of course I hear about the links to Manchester United, but the people in charge of the club (Barça) didn’t tell me anything. So then I will assume that there is no agreement, and that nothing is going on. So then I won’t worry about it too.”
Frenkie continued: “If I have been in contact with Ten Hag? I won’t tell you this. I wouldn’t tell you this if it was about another manager or club too.”
“I understand that. But the club didn’t tell me anything. They didn’t propose anything to me, so I am assuming that nothing is going on.” He added.
Jurrien Timber Is Keen On A Move To Manchester United
Jurrien Timber will consider his future on holiday amid Manchester United‘s interest. Erik ten Hag is considering a move for Timber who is a centre-back by trade but can also play at right-back.
Timber disclosed: “Of course I can develop further at Ajax – I am 100 percent sure of that. I don’t feel like I’m done at the club. But I can also develop at other clubs.”
“I am now focusing on the upcoming international matches and then go on holiday. Then I’ll have to think about it some more. In the end, my gut feeling will be the deciding factor.”
When asked about making the right decision on his future, he concluded with “The picture has to be right. You can go to a big club. But if you’re not going to play there, it’s better to stay with Ajax. And Ajax is also a big club.”
Manchester United would ideally like to have Jurrien Timber and Frenkie de Jong in for medicals by the time their time with the Dutch National Team ends as they look forward to strengthening both areas, with Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Matic, Mata and Pogba available for transfer.
Crystal Palace Hoping For Wan-Bissaka Reunion
Crystal Palace have interest in bringing Aaron Wan-Bissaka back on loan – any move is dependent on united sanctioning his departure, and allowing it to be temporary. A permanent return at this stage is unlikely.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka expects to have a direct meeting with Erik ten Hag soon to discuss his future, but the expectation within mufc is for him to leave in the summer.
Romano confirms that Manchester United will evaluate proposals for Wan-Bissaka – Crystal Palace have taken information, but only for a loan move. United are also expecting other clubs in the coming weeks.
