De Jong might join Man Utd’s Premier League rivals – Gary Neville
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has hinted that Frenkie De Jong could leave Barcelona for Chelsea this summer.
Neville was reacting to a social post that claimed “Chelsea are reportedly hoping to “hijack” Manchester United’s move for Frenkie de Jong."
He quoted the tweet and replied: “I was in Miami when Barca were there playing two weeks ago and I was told (third-hand) De Jong preferred staying at Barca or Chelsea or London."
