The departure of Frankie De Jong from FC Barcelona has turned a debate among Barcelona and Manchester United fans on the web.
Frankie De Jong has headlined several news tabloids after it popped out that FC Barcelona is looking forward to selling him to make money to free the club from financial crises.
With the signing of Erik Ten Hag at Manchester United, it was rumored that Manchester United had picked interest in the Dutch midfielder.
Meanwhile, other tabloids have also reported that the 25-year-old germ is looking forward to succeeding in Barcelona and playing for many years.
Even though some believe he has not lived up to expectations, others also believe that with the arrival of Xavi, he will be developed into a world-class talent.
Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if Frankie De Jong turns down an offer from Manchester United.
It is also said that he has said no to them, not once or twice.
Below are three reasons why he said no to the English giant club.
The Dutchman that the arrival of Xavi will do a lot of good to him looking at the fact that Xavi has played at the position where he plays to the highest limit.
In several pre and post-match conferences, the Barca manager has assured that Frankie will form an integral part of his project.
Also, Frankie has stated in an interview that since the arrival of Xavi, he has seen lots of improvements in his career.
Although getting enough earnings at Manchester United is assured, the player is also looking forward to participating in the Tuesday night league, the most decorated European league which Manchester United cannot offer him consistently unlike Barcelona.
It is every player’s dream to play in the champions league.
New house in Barcelona
Frankie De Jong and his girlfriend, Mickey Kemimi have bought a new apartment in Barcelona. It is reported that he has settled well in the city and is living happily with his girlfriend.
The summer will be long and De Jong’s offers will arrive at the Camp Nou offices, but for now, he is not thinking of anything other than continuing at Barcelona
