Erik ten Hag’s side spent much of last summer bringing him to Old Trafford amid the midfielder’s pay disputes at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona’s huge financial woes led them to put De Jong up for sale – but the ex-Ajax ace refused to move as the Catalans still owe him money.

His hefty £400,000-a-week salary should see him made available again in either January or the summer window.

However, former Man United winger and current Barcelona boss Jordi Cruyff insists De Jong is now unavailable for a transfer.

He told Sport: “Today it will not be talked about. There are moments in football and sometimes they are not only defined by football issues.

“The fair play situation. Not everyone understands what it is, there are changes every week, but there are situations and decisions that are not just football things. But time has passed and he plays an important role.

“The reality is Frenkie stayed, he’s a loved player, people expect a lot from him because he’s very talented and a little different player.”

Cruyff added: “There was an opportunity because good teams always want good players, that’s how it works. The reality is that he is here and he has an important role to play.


“There are market moments and it’s no longer about Frenkie it’s about everyone, there’s a fair play rule and the consequences of not following it are huge and there are calculations that have nothing to do with what’s on the space happened.

“It’s an accumulation of things, and you do some calculations. There is no other way. Fair play forces you to make decisions.”

De Jong, who helped Holland reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup, is under contract until 2026.

Since arriving in 2019, he has made 157 appearances, scoring 15 goals and providing 19 assists.
