Barcelona midfielder De Jong offers awkward response to Man Utd transfer query

Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong offered an awkward response to a question about Manchester United last night.

De Jong is currently on international duty with Holland and he spoke to the media yesterday after the 2-2 draw with Poland.

But it was his club situation rather than national duty that journalists wanted to know about.

De Jong was asked: “Are you going from the beaches of Catalonia to the cold of Manchester?"

And the 25-year-old star replied: “No... I think... I can't say anything."

The awkward exchange comes after reports that United have already had a £60million bid turned down for the Dutch midfielder.
