The Red Devils pursued the Dutchman for most of the transfer window before the 2022/23 season. Man Utd want to make him one of Erik ten Hag’s first major signings as head coach.
United are said to have agreed to pay a fee of €75m (£63m) to Barcelona, but failed to convince De Jong to switch to the Premier League.
De Jong has no intention of leaving the Camp Nou.
The 25-year-old has been a regular in the first team this season under Xavi Hernandez. He made a big contribution to helping Barca top the La Liga table.
However, there is information that the Red Devils will return to do the De Jong deal in the summer of 2023.
However, De Jong once again confirmed: “I am very calm before the rumors and very happy at Barcelona. I hope to stay at Barca for many years.
I have always dreamed of playing for Barca and I want to be successful here. Last summer, I was very calm and knew I would continue to stay at Barca.
I will never change my mind.”
