MANCHESTER UNITED and Chelsea target Frenkie de Jong could snub a move to England in favour of joining Bayern Munich, according to reports.
The Dutchman was heavily linked with the Prem duo in the recent window although he ended up staying with Barcelona.

But he was said to be unhappy with Barca for trying to force him to leave.
As a result, De Jong found himself out of the team following a summer of uncertainty, starting just one of Barca’s first four La Liga games.
He’s since won his place back and has established himself as a regular once again.
But his future still remains in doubt.
According to Spanish outlet Sport, the midfielder wants to stay at the Nou Camp.
And the report claims the ex-Ajax star would be “tempted” by a switch to the Bundesliga.
Meanwhile, Bayern are “convinced” that Barcelona might be forced to sell next summer, with another year off his contract likely to make for a more reasonable price.
On the pitch, De Jong enjoyed an impressive World Cup, helping Holland reach the quarter-finals before they suffered penalty heartache against Argentina.
The 25-year-old played all-but four minutes, chipping in with one goal and one assist.
