Barca president tells Man Utd: De Jong is not for sale

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has reiterated that Manchester United target Frenkie De Jong is not for sale.

Sky Sports News was told last week that the clubs have a "broad agreement" on the fee - believed to be €65m (£56m) plus performance-related add-ons.

However, Laporta remains clear in his public message regarding the future of the Dutch international.

Laporta said: "[Frenkie De Jong] is a Barca player. And unless we feel the need or the interest to sell him we won't do it. Frenkie de Jong isn't for sale. We know he has offers. And if at a given moment we are interested in selling him then we would think about it.

"But right now we won't sell him. Even more, we are acquiring another Franck. Franck Kessie."
