Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong and his agents don’t seem to be cooperating with the club.

The Netherlands international is having a row with the club amid wages and has vowed to stay at Barcelona.

Barcelona have accepted a bid from Manchester United, but De Jong has refused to move to Old Trafford.

Chelsea have come into the picture, but De Jong doesn’t want a move yet.

Barcelona have told De Jong to take a paycut, but he has so far rejected the idea, and has earned the wrath of Barcelona fans who booed him on Wednesday.

ESPN’s Samuel Marsden has now claimed that De Jong’s representatives have told Chelsea and Manchester United that he doesn’t want a move.

He tweeted: “FDJ’s agents have told Chelsea & Barça not to use intermediaries in talks after Barça pres. Laporta tried to involve Pini Zahavi.

“Feeling is that will only hinder things. For now, FDJ camp remain clear that they don’t intend to move.”

With Barcelona fans booing De Jong on Wednesday, it’s yet to be seen if he would still be a Barcelona player, come the end of the summer transfer window.
