However, when asked about the situation, Tebas insisted that players cannot separate themselves from “collective agreement”.

He said: “The players cannot be split from the team or pressured – it’s what collective agreement, the Law, reason, ethics mark.

“From there, Barcelona knows the rules and the responsibilities.”

De Jong is refusing to leave Camp Nou until for £17million in deferred wages.
