As the Barcelona star rejects the Man Utd offer, Harry Redknapp claims to “know for a fact” that Frenkie de Jong wants to transfer to Chelsea.


Frenkie de Jong, according to former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, prefers to join Chelsea over Manchester United this summer.

De Jong, 25, has been a target for the Red Devils since the transfer window opened in June.

United officials have attempted to entice him to Old Trafford despite having already agreed to a £72 million deal with Barcelona.

The Dutchman has made it clear that he wants to remain at the Nou Camp for the upcoming season, but Redknapp thinks Chelsea could convince him to join them if they make a compelling offer.

When speaking to The Byline“Now it looks like De Jong wants to go to Chelsea, I know that for a fact, he wants to go to Chelsea,” the former manager said.

“Man United won’t acquire him. He’s made up his mind and really wants to go to Chelsea, according to information I received from someone at the very, very, very top of Man United.

So if he goes to Chelsea and Man United don’t get him, I’m not sure where they’re going, and if Chelsea get him, he’ll be an excellent signing for them, without a doubt.

According to reports, the Blues have made a trade offer to Barcelona for De Jong that includes £59 million and Marcos Alonso.

The LaLiga heavyweights have been pursuing Alonso for months, so club officials may be tempted to accept the offer.
