Manchester United (MU) is reportedly soon to complete the transfer of Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona. The situation is open, the difference in numbers between the two clubs is getting thinner.
De Jong transfer rumors have been on the air since a few weeks ago. The arrival of Erik ten Hag as Manchester United’s new coach was the trigger. Ten Hag wants to reunite with De Jong at Old Trafford.
Initially, it was suspected that Barca would not let De Jong go, but the situation changed quickly. The Dutch midfielder doesn’t seem to fit Xavi’s tactics and Barca need more money than selling players.
Therefore, Barca are open to welcoming MU’s interest. They are ready to let go if they get a satisfactory offer.
MU twice made an offer for De Jong, both were rejected by Barca. MU’s second offer worth 60 million euros plus bonuses has not been accepted by the Blaugrana.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are now willing to increase the offer to 65 million euros. Bara wants to open a room for discussion, but that doesn’t mean it will lower demands.
Interestingly, discussions between MU and Barca about De Jong have so far been positive. There is confidence from the MU that this transfer will be realized soon.
Talks will revolve around the 65 million euro mark. That is, it is true that De Jong is getting closer to Man United.
Furthermore, although optimistic in the hunt for De Jong, it is reported that MU is still taking steps very carefully. The Red Devils do not want to repeat the mistakes of the last few years.
“United will be in no rush to reach an agreement and they are prepared to back down if they can’t agree on a reasonable price,” said Sky Sports analyst Dharmesh Sheth.
De Jong has yet to provide a new statement. He admits that Barcelona is the club of his dreams, but it is suspected that De Jong has already spoken to Ten Hag behind the scenes.
“It has been reported that De Jong is very open to a reunion with his former coach at Ajax, Erik ten Hag and this will be United’s first signing of the summer,” he said.
