Following more negotiations, Manchester United and Barcelona have come to a complete agreement regarding Frenkie de Jong. 85-million-euro package Fee of around €75m plus add-ons is assured.
Fans will be relieved to hear that Manchester United and Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has apparently achieved a complete agreement over the possibility of a transfer. has
De Jong appears to be the ideal fit for Erik ten Hag’s style of play, and he’d also significantly strengthen United’s midfield, which is now looking like a weak spot following the departures of both Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic, while there are still questions surrounding players like Fred and Scott McTominay, and Donny van de Beek has recently returned from an unimpressive loan at Everton.
According to the most recent sources, the Netherlands international has yet to agree on personal terms because his top objective is still to stay at the Nou Camp.
It would be intriguing to see if Manchester United can convince Frenkie De Jong that it would be in his best interest to leave Barcelona for United despite their current struggles in their pursuit of the Barcelona midfielder.
Erik ten Hag, who previously managed Man United, will take the helm, but the 20-time league champions won’t be competing in the Champions League the following season. Barcelona will, of course, so it is understandable why De Jong would decide to stay in his current position the next time around. It seems logical that the international from the Netherlands could be reluctant to leave Camp Nou.
De Jong, 25, has been Erik ten Hag’s top target for the summer transfer window, and the former Ajax manager will feel bitterly let down if he is unable to bring the Netherlands international to Old Trafford.
Not only would it be upsetting to miss out on a top target, but ten Hag will be extremely concerned about that area of the field given the fact that four senior midfielders, including Paul Pogba, left at the end of the season after failing to extend their contracts.
