Frankie de Jong fades away for Man Utd
Manchester United have finally begun to accept that there will be no deal for Frankie de Jong for them this summer.
United have chased the Barcelona star for most of the summer, although his deal has been extremely complicated to get. While the fee has been imposed with Barcelona, it has been far more difficult for Manchester to convince the player to leave Catalonia.
And with the player still owed £14.4m (€17m) in deferred pay, the situation is certainly complicated. To lubricate the wheels, Gary Neville has claimed that the midfielder needs to take action against his side.
However, de Jong insisted that he had no intention of leaving. And despite claims that Xavi has told him he will a) be a fifth-choice midfielder and b) will need to take a wage cut to stay afloat, de Jong continues to dig his heels.
Furthermore, the midfielder seems intent on proving Xavi wrong and becoming a regular in his side.
To complicate matters further, it is now claimed that Chelsea are working out an approach to sign de Jong.
The Blues seem to have a better chance of landing de Jong than they can offer in Champions League football.
and reports suggest that they Barcelona could send Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso in part exchange,

Fabian Ruiz moves into sharp focus for Man Utd
Although, Manchester United They might be more happy if they made a deal for Fabian Ruiz instead.
The Napoli star has established himself as one of Serie A’s finest midfielders during his time at Campania.
He was mentioned over the weekend as a replacement for Erik Ten Haag – and now those hopes are rising sharply.
According to SunThe 15-time capped Spain star held talks with Napoli on Saturday over a contract extension.
However, both sides were unable to agree on terms on a deal that expires in the summer of 2023.
As such, the paper claims that Napoli is willing to consider the sale of Fabian Ruiz this summer for a deal worth £26m (€31m).
That fee has buoyed United and Ten Haig considering their capabilities.
And it looks like they may try to change their plans and sign the 26-year-old instead.
United, however, face competition from Real Madrid, for whom Carlo Ancelotti is also a fan of Ruiz.
He coached them during his days in charge of Gli Azurri.
However, Real have a plethora of midfield options and Fabian Ruiz seems to have a better chance of regular football at Old Trafford.
Chelsea play hard for Wesley Fofana and Denzel Dumfries
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is eyeing deals for Wesley Fofana and Denzel Dumfries.
Tuchel has had a disappointing summer so far, despite the inclusion of Raheem Sterling and Kalido Koulibaly. And with Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger free, their defense feels short of numbers.
As such, it’s more center-part that Tuchel desperately craves.
However, he has seen his side lose first to Matthijs de Ligt and then to Jules Kaunde. The Frenchman’s £42m move to Barcelona will be particularly difficult, as Chelsea have chased him for more than a year.
As a result, it looks like Wesley Fofana of Leicester is now their top target.
