Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is said to want to pursue midfielder Frenkie de Jong in the summer transfer window.
Journalist Dean Jones told GiveMeSport that there is a definite interest from Man City in Barca midfielder Frenkie De Jong. Jones said that this is the person who Pep Guardiola has “long admired”.
The report also said, “the chance for Man City to sign with the 25-year-old midfielder is very low “unless Barca change their recent stance and decide to sell De Jong to raise cash”.
Earlier in March, The Guardian reported that Man Utd want to sign De Jong in the summer of 2023. Erik Ten Hag once really wanted to get the Dutch player in the summer transfer window of 2022 but no wall.
Currently, De Jong is playing an important role at Barca. He started 24 times for the Nou Camp team in La Liga and contributed 2 goals and 2 assists. Despite the defeat in the European arena this season, Barca is facing a great opportunity to win the La Liga title. That will be a great basis for coach Xavi to convince De Jong to continue to stay in Spain.
