Frenkie de Jong 'has told Erik ten Hag he DOES want to join Manchester United after the Red Devils turned their season around' in a shock U-turn - but Barcelona 'are FURIOUS after he refused to leave last summer during their financial crisis'
According to Fichajes, De Jong has had conversations over the phone with the United boss where he declared his desire to move to the Red Devils.
The 25-year-old was heavily linked with a move to United in the summer but opted to stay at Barcelona.

Barcelona made no secret of their financial struggles in the summer and their decision to try and shift De Jong.
Yet, the midfielder was not willing to make a move despite the Catalan club's desire to sell.
Speaking at a press conference in the summer, De Jong said: 'Chelsea and Man United interest? I already decided in May that I wanted to stay at Barcelona. I never changed this decision during the summer.'
However, according to the report, De Jong has gone back on his decision since making those comments.
Fichajes say that this sudden change of heart has angered Barcelona bosses after his refusal to make the move when they most needed it.

Despite not getting off to a great start, Manchester United have started to pick up form under their new boss Ten Hag.
United currently occupy a Champions League position and this could be of interest to the Holland midfielder.
The possible addition of De Jong could inspire United to kick on even more as they take on the second-half of the season.
The Red Devils play Bournemouth in their next league game as they look to continue to climb the Premier League table.
