Man Utd ends pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong

Manchester United have ended their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Sport says De Jong was always the number one target for United manager Erik ten Hag, but the player's adamant stance has forced the 'Red Devils' to find an alternative.

The player's entourage is still outraged by the pressure being put on his new contract by the Spanish giants and want nothing to do with a transfer.

The option of playing in the Premier League seems closed, either at United or Chelsea.

The Blues joined the bidding in recent weeks, but neither the offer to play the Champions League nor the words of Todd Boehly have changed the Dutchman's mind.
