Dutch football star, Frenkie de Jong, will not join Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL) this season because of personal and sporting reasons.
According to Sport, the midfielder has his heart set on staying at Barcelona and is not interested in a move to Old Trafford to team up with his former boss, Erik ten Hag.
Chelsea are also interested in him and while the ex-Ajax Amsterdam star is less reluctant to move to the London club, he would prefer to continue his career at Camp Nou.
