Barcelona have told Frenkie de Jong that he has two options this summer

According to reports, Barcelona has informed Frenkie de Jong that he has two options this summer, despite interest from Manchester United.
Man United have been interested in the Netherlands international for over two months, with Premier League side Chelsea also not rumoured to be interested.
De Jong’s priority this summer was always to stay at Barcelona, with numerous reports over the summer exaggerating and then downplaying a move to Manchester United.

Man United deny Ferguson’s claims about Ronaldo, and Chelsea forget about Kounde.

There were three stories yesterday: one claiming Manchester United had received ‘encouraging feedback’ about a potential transfer, another claiming De Jong will ‘only agree’ to a move from Barcelona to Chelsea, and finally that the Dutchman’s relationship with Erik ten Hag is ‘not particularly special.’
One of the roadblocks to a potential move to Manchester United is De Jong’s attempts to get Barcelona to pay him around £17 million in deferred wages and bonuses from the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
And now, according to COPE journalist Helena Condis, Barcelona has “given Frenkie de Jong two options,” with the club receiving “several offers” for his services.
He can either ‘accept the salary reduction’ they have proposed, which is said to be nearly 50% of his current salary, or ‘quit’ the club.
Is there, however, a third option? Why not honor the contract you gave him when he first signed it in July 2019? And perhaps repay the reported millions in deferred wages and bonuses you owe him as well?
If De Jong accepts a pay cut, Barcelona will have more options in the transfer market as they look to add more players before the season begins.
The Catalan giants have already signed Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen on free transfers, while Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha cost a lot of money.
Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has urged De Jong to “consider legal action” against “immoral” Barcelona for “bullying.”
“De Jong should consider legal action v Barcelona, and all players should be behind him!” Neville wrote on Twitter. A club spending millions on new players while failing to pay the players under contract in full is both immoral and illegal. @FIFPRO should take a stand against bullying and put a stop to it.”
