Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has been linked with a summer transfer move to Premier League side, Manchester United.

However, Barca has rejected an opening offer from Manchester United for the Dutchman rumoured to be around €80m.

De Jong has chosen to remain tight-lipped about his future, after being asked about a likely move to Manchester United.

After the 2-2 draw between the Netherlands and Poland in the Nations League, De Jong was asked by an interviewer if he was prepared to swap the beaches of Catalunya for the cold of Manchester.

The Dutch international laughed at the question before replying: “No…I can’t say anything.”

De Jong has said he’d like to remain at Barcelona, but the club has no option than to sell him in order to balance the books.
