There will always be attempts by clubs to turn fans against players if they refuse to leave, but there’s really nothing you can do once a multi-year contract is awarded.
Barcelona have made some big moves this summer, but it will have a huge impact on players who need to leave to reduce the size of the squad, but also when it comes to bringing in some money to allow for more moves.
One of the biggest stories this summer has been Frenkie de Jong’s potential move to Manchester United – it’s been quiet in recent weeks as the Dutch star appears not to want to leave, but a report from sports He indicated that there was new hope for United.
It basically says that Xavi is planning to sit down with both De Jong and Memphis Depay to tell them it’s best to leave the club this summer, and United has been mentioned again as a potential destination for the midfielder.
At this point it’s not clear if any of the players actually want to leave, but if the manager starts putting pressure on him to leave and if they feel unwanted, they may have to reconsider their plans.
There’s no indication of a potential suitor for the Memphis right now, but he’s a good striker that should attract attention, while stories about De Jong coming to Old Trafford are likely to surface over the next few days.
