Frenkie de Jong is likely to sign with Manchester United soon

During this transfer window, FC Barcelona is trying to get and sell players at a faster rate. This summer, the Catalan club is putting more effort into strengthening itself because it wants to bring new ideas and energy to its team. Even though Barcelona has a lot of goals to reach, the financial problems that have been plaguing them since the pandemic make it hard for the club to make any possible signings during the transfer window. The Catalan management must first sell players to get money back and now they are closer to running a great business in the Premier League. The Catalan management wants to get a star player to help them attack.


Erik ten Hag has said he wants to sign Frenkie de Jong. The Dutch international was given up by Barcelona, and especially by Xavi, who put him on the transfer list to help fill the club’s coffers. Even though his level of play was pretty good, this did happen.

The former Ajax player is looking for a place to start, and he knows that his former coach could help out when they both meet at United. Even though Manchester’s first offer of sixty million euros for the player, who is now 25 years old, was turned down, the English club is about to try again with a higher amount of money.

Reports from the media 90min say that Manchester United is about to make an important offer to Barcelona for 80 million euros. A sum that is about what Joan Laporta, who has been stubborn throughout the whole negotiation process, has been expecting to get. The source says that Erik ten Hag would have tried to get the Dutch player for the Manchester United midfield during the transfer window this summer. The manager of the Red Devils has told the media that they want the transfer to happen as soon as possible.

Frenkie de jong would then have the third-highest salary of all players at United, which could have had a big effect on the player’s decision to join the Reds. Xavi wants to use either Robert Lewandowski or Bernardo Silva in his next attack, and this transfer gives FC Barcelona a chance to get one of them.
