SIGH! De Jong part of pre-season squad despite Man Utd agreeing terms with Barca

Tier one journalist Fabrizio Romano has affirmed that Frenkie de Jong is going with the Barcelona squad for their impending pre-season tour in the United States.

This is notwithstanding the Catalan giants’ agreement with Manchester United to sell Frenkie for an expense of €75 million or more €10 million in additional items.

The Dutch midfielder is as yet declining to leave Barcelona in the midst of his stalemate with the club over neglected compensation worth €17 million.

This leaves United in an odd position – we have finished a agreement with Barcelona yet can’t actually celebrate it.

It’s hazy what the Red Devils will do about this present circumstance, taking into account Erik ten Hag’s excitement to sign De Jong.

As things stand however, the 25-year-old has shown no expectation to leave Barca. Furthermore, now that he’s gone for pre-season with the Spanish side, maybe it’s about time for United to track down different choices.

Don’t forget updated few days ago that Barca will drop the Dutchman from their pre-season squad on the off chance that he doesn’t acknowledge Man United’s deal.

Jamie Carragher has cautioned Antonio Conte he should address Tottenham’s embarrassing record at Stamford Bridge assuming that they are to become serious Premier League competitors.

Assumptions are high for Spurs this season, with a solid completion last season to get Champions League football upheld by a bustling summer of move action. Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Ivan Perisic are among those to have arrived in north London.

Conte’s side came from behind to beat Southampton 4-1 in their opening match of the season, and they face an early test of their credentials with a trip to face Chelsea on Sunday.

Tottenham have won just once at Stamford Bridge since the inaugural Premier League season in 1992. That came in 2018, when Dele Alli scored twice in a 3-1 win, and Conte was in the home dugout as Chelsea boss.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s clash, Carragher hit out at Spurs’ record at the ground, though he believes Conte could be the man to change it after the Italian led his side to draw at Anfield and victory away to Manchester City last season.

“I think we’ll see a lot of what Spurs are about today,” Carragher said.

“You’ve mentioned how many times they’ve won [at Stamford Bridge]. It’s embarrassing – two top teams, in London, to come here and only win once in the Premier League era.

“That’s what Antonio Conte has to change. If you look at the record last season against Liverpool and Manchester City, he got really big results.”

‘That is what they didn’t do’ – Erik explains what his boys failed to do at Brentford loss

'That is what they didn't do' - Erik explains what his boys failed to do at Brentford loss

Talking his disappointment at Manchester United’s 4-0 misfortune to Brentford this Saturday, Erik ten Hag said in his post-match interview: “Difficult for me and a surprise. The team has to take the responsibility and I feel sorry for the fans, we let them down.

“I asked them [the players] to play with belief and take responsibility, that is what they didn’t do.

“Only when we stick together we will overcome it — don’t get me wrong, the manager is the main responsibility and I take that but I have to give them belief and they have to get it by themselves.

“Mistakes are part of football, you have to keep going but you have [to] especially act — It [three subs at half-time] was about bringing fresh ones. I could have changed all eight others as well.”

Ten Hag has plainly not kept down in his evaluation and United just have themselves to fault for this wreck.

The Red Devils are currently winless in their first two Premier League games, having conceded six goals as of now.
