Since the arrival of Erik ten Hag al Manchester United expressed interest in having Frenkie de Jong. However, everything was delayed and to date they have not reached an agreement with Barcelona. This made it possible to add competition: Chelsea he wants it too.
The midfielder has been in the orbit of the Red Devils since the end of the Premier League season, but the efforts never came to fruition. Although The Athletic assures that they are in talks with their representative to define the details, there is nothing concrete.
Despite this, there is a desire on the part of the 25-year-old footballer, which is to play in the Champions League, a competition in which United will not be this year. For this reason, the Blues, who intend to reinforce the squad for this campaign, also aroused their desire to have him.
Precisely, in this case The Guardian affirms that the London institution remains expectant of what happens between the Dutch and Manchester to be able to advance the negotiations with the Culé. In that sense, today it is more possible that it could fall back there.
They would pay 65 million euros for De Jong, who in the last campaign with the Blaugrana played 47 games between all competitions in which he scored four goals and provided five assists, plus another 20 million extra in variables.
