Joan Laporta is ruling out a transfer for Manchester United target Frenkie De Jong after stating that Barcelona have "no intention of selling" the player.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has stated that they have "no intention" of letting Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong leave this summer.

Despite having four years left to run on his current contract, De Jong has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, with a previous report suggesting that "a broad agreement" had been agreed between United and the Catalan giants.

However, there has been an element of doubt surrounding the possible transfer, as De Jong is reportedly refusing to leave Barcelona this summer

According to the Evening Standard, Barcelona are also keen to retain the services of the Dutchman, with club president Laporta expressing his desire to keep the player.

Laporta told reporters: "There are clubs that want him, not just United. We have no intention of selling him, he wants to stay.

"Frenkie is considered as one of the best midfielders in the world by all the experts. We are happy to have him.

"I'm going to do everything I can in my power so that Frenkie stays here, but there's also a salary issue and that would have to be adjusted."

De Jong has made 137 appearances for Barcelona and has scored 12 goals in his time with the club.
