A furious Frenkie de Jong lashed out at the media during Tuesday’s press conference over what he insisted were “invented stories” about his future.

No stranger to transfer rumours, De Jong’s future has been back in the headlines in recent weeks amid claims that his high salary is too much for Barcelona, who could be tempted to cash in on his services this summer. Other reports have claimed De Jong is unhappy at the club and could request an exit.

The speculation was put to De Jong and the Dutch international made no attempt to hide his frustration, insisting he remains completely happy with life at Barcelona.

“The truth is that I’m a bit pissed off with what you people [the media] write in general,” he began. “A lot of things are coming out that are not true and it’s irritating me. I can’t understand it. I don’t know how you’re not ashamed to write it.

“You’re talking a lot about my contract, about my situation, about my salary, it’s a lot of smoke and lies. I’m earning €40m or something? That’s very far from reality. I’m not going to tell you the real figures.

“They’ve invented a story that is not the truth. I am very happy at Barca, it is the club of my dreams and I hope to continue playing here for many years.”

Asked whether he felt those in charge at the club were behind the media reports, De Jong continued: “I can’t say because I don’t know. I hope not.

“I know that many things are invented because you write things that are not true. You are doing it in general with many players and coaches. I have a feeling this isn’t going to change, but you should, because you can’t write things that aren’t true.

“I consider those inside the club as my teammates. The day-to-day people, the staff… it’s great. A 10. I’m enjoying it a lot. If someone things I play badly in the press, that doesn’t matter, because everyone can have their opinion…but the lies, you have to change.”
