Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has insisted that while he does not have any ill feeling towards club president Joan Laporta, the two did have a 'situation' last summer.

90min reported extensively last year that the Dutchman was the subject of heavy interest from Manchester United, who had just appointed his former coach from his Ajax days, Erik ten Hag, as their new manager.

The Red Devils were willing to meet Barça's lofty asking price but a major stumbling block proved to be De Jong's deferred wages from previous years, demanding to be paid them in full before thinking about an exit.
