Frenkie de Jong’s preferred Premier League club revealed

Barcelona midefider, Frenkie de Jong wanted a move to Manchester City this summer transfer window should he eventually leave the Blaugrana, Newspremises has learnt.

De Jong had drawn the interest of Manchester United in the past few weeks following the appointment of Erik ten Hag.


The Dutch professional footballer is said to be close to completing a move to Old Trafford, with a deal described as ‘95% likely’.

But according to The Athletic, the Dutch international has the preference to join Manchester City despite the interest from Manchester United.

City are viewed as the more likely destination for De Jong, with manager Pep Guardiola keen to sign a replacement for Fernandinho.

However, the Red Devils can only finish with a Europa League place at best this season and that will make it ‘difficult’ to persuade De Jong to join the Old Trafford club.

De Jong played under Ten Hag for 18 months at Ajax before his move to Barcelona in 2019.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are cash-strapped and De Jong is one of their most valuable but disposable assets, with the Catalan club hoping to raise as much as £65million from his departure.
