Manchester United legend Gary Neville has told Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong to sue Barcelona.

Manchester United are keen on signing De Jong, but the Dutchman is refusing a move away from the club.

Reports claim that one of De Jong’s main insistence for not leaving is based on his deferred wages.

De Jong took a pay cut to help the club out during the pandemic times, on the provision that he would earn back that money over the next couple of seasons.

This means if he were to leave this summer, De Jong would still be owed the money he is entitled to.

Gary Neville has now advised De Jong to sue the club.

“De Jong should consider legal action [versus] Barcelona and all players should be behind him!” Neville posted on Twitter on Monday.

“A club spending fortunes on new players whilst not paying the ones they have under contract their full money is immoral and a breach.

“@FIFPRO should be all over bullying like this and stop it.”
