Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong would rather play for Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea instead of the 'erratic' Red Devils.
United have spent their summer trying to convince the Dutchman to swap Barcelona for Manchester to no avail. Barcelona have been trying to move De Jong, for a quick cash grab, but the Dutchman would rather stay in Catalonia.
And now, according to Spanish-outlet Sport, De Jong would rather join Chelsea if he has to move to the Premier League this summer. The report claims De Jong has zero interest in moving to Manchester and he doesn't like the city and thinks United are run erratically.

Barcelona are hoping that De Jong will leave so they can redistribute his wages to new signings Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen.
The report suggests that De Jong is 'not closed' to a move to Stamford Bridge, and he's tempted by the 'project' that is taking shape under Todd Boehly. De Jong is also believed to be open to move to London as a city with his fiancee Mikky Kiemeney.
Another option for the Dutchman could be Bayern Munich, who have just signed former teammate Ryan Gravenberch to play in defensive midfield.
