Manchester United suffers with Frenkie de Jong. Could Bayern Munich have better luck? It appears that the midfielder’s file from FC Barcelona has once again ended up on the Munich offices.

If it had been up to Manchester United, the deal with Frenkie de Jong would have been done long ago. For months, the English record champions have been trying to get the midfielder from FC Barcelona. However, he has absolutely no interest in joining the volatile heavyweight in the Premier League.

Last month in July, it was said that De Jong could only imagine a move to Bayern Munich, if it ever happened. This topic hasn’t been specifically discussed yet, but it could actually be back in the final sprint out of the summer change window.

According to reporter Gerard Romero, who is close to Barcelona, ​​the record German champions are again considering a possible De Jong move. Corresponding plans should already be in the drawer and present a model similar to that of Philippe Coutinho three years ago.

Frenkie de Jong: Bayern Munich’s plan

The iconic player was loaned from Barcelona for a season at the time, and Bayern Munich eventually waived the agreed purchase option. Initially De Jong must also be loaned and can be committed to contact via option.

United are said to still be hoping for a move. According to Sports Commerce magazine, delegates from the Red Devils are heading to Barcelona to start negotiations again over the transfer of the 25-year-old. De Jong is still a dream player for United boss Eric ten Hag.

Is there really anything else going on? In principle, De Jong has shown no interest in leaving Barcelona after three years – and has made it clear in recent weeks. On the other hand, Barcelona would like to sell the midfielder due to serious economic problems.

Frenkie de Jong may not be a problem at Bayern Munich

There is at least a denial of sensational reports in the media. According to Sky, De Jong is still not an issue at Bayern Munich, and there will certainly be no cooperation this summer. In Munich they are counting on Joshua Kimmich and new signing Ryan Gravenberch, who has developed well and is considered a potential regular for the next few weeks.
