Frenkie de Jong will keep on fighting for his place at Barcelona.
The Netherlands international was aggressively chased by Manchester United back in the summer. And his ex manager Erik ten Hag remains personally keen to reunite with the 25-year-old, despite bringing in Casemiro from Real Madrid.
Sport reports that De Jong has no desire to leave Barcelona in the New Year and doesn’t want to jump ship midway through the season.

Yet it’s thought De Jong’s stance is different when it comes to Chelsea, who would be able to offer the 25-year-old a chance to play in the Champions League.
The Netherlands international now feels he can be a key player for Barcelona, despite often being stuck behind the likes of Pedri and Gavi in the club’s pecking order.
