I prefer to stay with Barcelona, according to De Jong.

Barcelona is my dream club. Also from a young age. I said it as well. Despite the fact that I had hoped for more in terms of prizes, I have never regretted my choice. I have never regretted my choice.

After winning the Dutch title and reaching the semifinals of the European Championship under Ten Hag at Ajax, De Jong moved to Barcelona, but he has had a difficult start to life at the club. Barcelona finished second in the LaLiga behind Real Madrid, who also won the European Championship, while Xavi's side lost to Eintracht Frankfurt in the quarterfinals of the Europa League.

According to sources, Ten Hag wants to test the resolve of Barcelona with a bid for De Jong, despite his desire to remain at Camp Nou.

As the club continues to suffer from financial difficulties, it's possible that they'll sell De Jong. They can only spend 25% of savings on wages or transfer fees until they are operating within their spending limit, which has been reduced by LaLiga.

One of the most expensive assets in the club is De Jong, but he has not been in contact with either Ten Hag or United.

There is absolutely no agreement or official. There is no question of it at the moment.

Not that I know of. They must not have told me, but I don't think so.

The new deputy football director for United is Andy O&Boyle. The head of elite performance was previously served by O&Boyle.

The first team prepares for a fresh start under ten Hag, and the Academy and women's teams go from strength to strength, so I am thrilled to be rejoining Manchester United at such an exciting time.
