De Jong angrily HITS BACK at transfer links to Man Utd and slams fake reports

Frenkie de Jong has expressed his frustration with the media’s coverage of him and Barcelona, particularly regarding transfer links and speculation about his earnings at the club.

Despite joining Barcelona in 2019 after an impressive spell at Ajax, he has been frequently linked with moves away, with Manchester United and Chelsea often mentioned.

De Jong, however, has been firm in his commitment to Barcelona and has criticized the media for what he perceives as inaccurate reporting.

He has made it clear that he is focused on his role at Barcelona and is not interested in speculation about his future.

“If I’m honest, I am getting quite irritated lately,’ De Jong said. ‘I am very angry at what you (media) write or say about me. There are a lot of stories that are simply not true. I simply can’t get my head around it. Some of you write lies all the time and I don’t get how you are not ashamed about it.

“There’s a lot of talk about my contract situation and my salary. There’s a lot of smoke in there and plenty of lies. You the media are saying that I earn around £34.3million-per-year (€40m-per-year)… this is really far from the truth. I am not going to reveal figures, but that’s simply lying.

“I am really happy here. Barcelona was and is the club of my life, it was my dream to play here and it still is. I am not happy with the press and everything that surrounds the club because, as I’ve been saying, it’s full of lies.”

Reports from Spain suggested that Frenkie de Jong had been given an ultimatum to either bring in an offer for his transfer or sign a new contract, amid concerns over his wages at Barcelona.

Despite interest from Manchester United and Chelsea in the past, De Jong opted to stay with Barcelona.

However, recent comments from the midfielder indicate that he may be willing to remain at Barcelona, casting doubt on the interest from these clubs. With Xavi set to leave at the end of the season, there could be significant changes at Barcelona in the summer.

Despite a run of poor results earlier in the season, including defeats to Athletic Bilbao and Villarreal, Xavi has overseen an improvement in form with three games undefeated.

Palmer overtakes three-season Havertz stat at Chelsea

Cole Palmer’s remarkable four-goal performance against Everton on Monday evening has propelled him to the top of the Premier League golden boot race.

With 20 goals to his name this season, he is now neck and neck with Erling Haaland in the race for the prestigious award.

His scoring spree also highlights his incredible impact at Chelsea, as he has now scored more league goals in his first seven months at the club than Kai Havertz managed in three seasons, tallying 19 goals.

Palmer’s outstanding form has been instrumental in Chelsea’s climb up the Premier League table, bringing them within just three points of sixth place.

'He's had 48 hours' - Arsenal boss shares update on Bukayo Saka after furious penalty demand

Bukayo Saka expressed frustration at not being awarded a penalty after a clash with Manuel Neuer during Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.

He confronted the referee at full-time and even followed him down the tunnel, a departure from Saka’s typically composed demeanor.

When questioned about Saka’s condition before the upcoming match against Aston Villa on Sunday, Mikel Arteta stated, “Yes, he looked fine this morning.”

“He’s had 48 hours to think about it and it’s done.”

Arteta chose not to address the incident after the game, but there was a general consensus that Saka’s contact with Neuer was minimal.

Saka faced criticism for his reaction, but given the high emotions of the game, such reactions were not uncommon.

Real Madrid 3-3 Man City: Valverde caps off evening of stunning goals in Champions League thriller

Manchester City and Real Madrid played out an enthralling 3-3 draw in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final, setting up an intriguing second leg at the Etihad Stadium.

City took an early lead through Bernardo Silva’s cleverly taken free-kick, but Madrid equalized twice with deflected strikes from Eduardo Camavinga and Rodrygo, which took slight touches off Ruben Dias and Manuel Akanji respectively.

Phil Foden restored City’s lead with a superb strike from outside the box, before Josko Gvardiol scored his first goal for the club with a fine right-footed shot to make it 3-2.

However, Madrid fought back once again, with Federico Valverde’s stunning volley ensuring the tie ended level.

The result leaves the quarter-final finely balanced ahead of the second leg, with City looking to replicate their 4-0 victory over Madrid in last season’s semi-finals at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a late injury concern for City as Foden hobbled off following a late tackle on his ankle, but the extent of the injury is yet to be determined.
