Manchester United seemed to be in the running for Frenkie de Jong (25) from FC Barcelona for a long time. Now, of all things, Manchester rival City could slide between them.

Questions for the future: Manchester City could once again shake Frenkie de Jong’s move to Manchester United, which was already believed to be safe. As the “Sun” reports, Pep Guardiola de Jong has identified as a potential successor to Ilkay Gündogan (31). His future at City is questionable.

Money questions: Gündogan’s contract with the “Skyblues” expires in 2023. City could only generate a transfer fee this summer. So it’s all the more fitting that Barca have to sell players in order to be able to strengthen themselves. The Catalans are over 1.3 billion euros in debt.

Competition issues: In addition, a move to Guardiola for de Jong also seems to exude additional appeal because of the Champions League. He could not compete in this competition at Manchester United, but his compatriot Erik ten Hag will be in the coaching bench there from the coming season.
