Barcelona ace Frenkie de Jong offers blunt Man Utd reply; happier talking up Holland quality

Barcelona ace Frenkie de Jong gave a blunt response to reporters asking about a move to Manchester United in January.

The Holland international is again being linked with United after turning down Old Trafford last summer.

Now in Qatar for the World Cup, De Jong was asked about the fresh speculation this morning.

"I am in a World Cup, I am not going to talk about clubs...," he replied.

De Jong, however, was more forthcoming about the Oranje ahead of facing Qatar.

He continued: "We have scored many goals, we are undefeated and we have four points in the World Cup. Being in a good position. We have talked a lot about what we want to do and improve after the match against Ecuador.

"We all have confidence. Now it's up to us. We are defensively doing well. If we are not focused, each game can be difficult in this World Cup.

"I think we have a great team, a great selection and we have demonstrated it more than once. Tomorrow we are going to focus to win the game and be first in the group."
