Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong will remain at the club when the transfer window closes this week.
Despite Barcelona’s willingness to sell the 25-year-old, de Jong has consistently stated his permanent desire to stay in Catalonia, for the 2022/23 campaign.
De Jong’s representatives previously informed United of his intention to stay at the Camo Nou and the saga appears to be coming to an end.
CBS Sports, via Ben Jacobs, claim that a decision has been made by both clubs and that de Jong will get his wish.
Frenkie de Jong should get his wish and stay at Barcelona. As previously reported, Manchester United have all but given up. No new significant offensive to sign him has taken place. Chelsea haven’t made any further progress either. Liverpool are looking elsewhere.

United resigned themselves to defeat in the race for the former Ajax playmaker and Chelsea failed to make progress in talks with Barcelona.
De Jong is set to sign a restructured contract at Barcelona as the club aim to reduce their bloated wage bill next month.
