Chelsea news: Blues ‘monitoring’ Frenkie de Jong as doubt solid over Man Utd agreement | Football | Sport


Chelsea are reportedly monitoring Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong in case his move to Manchester United breaks down. The Red Devils have been locked into negotiations with Barca and the Dutchman’s camp for weeks, but things could fall at the ultimate hurdle if he decides that Champions League football is a must ahead of the brand new campaign. 

Latest United boss Erik ten Hag made De Jong his top transfer goal as soon as he took the reins, and while talks at the moment are of their final stages, the player has hardly done all the pieces in his power to reunite together with his former Ajax boss. 

On several occasions, De Jong has used press conference to strengthen the notion that he would favor to remain at Barcelona – the club he ‘dreamed’ of playing for as a baby, and one which can offer him Champions League football next season. 

United cannot offer him the identical luxury after ending sixth within the Premier League last term. If that is enough to see the deal go south, The Guardian claim that Chelsea are waiting to pounce as Thomas Tuchel’s side gear up for a season in Europe’s top-tier competition.
