Frenkie de Jong close to landing in Manchester for €80M

Sources close to the Catalan club confirm that they have already reached an agreement with Manchester United to transfer Frenkie de Jong for a figure close to €80M. The Dutch international has moved to second place since Xavi Hernández landed and his departure was the best solution for all parties.

However, the player still would not have said yes to United and he is not convinced of joining such an unstable sports project. Without Champions this course they will have to play the Europa League and they will have to strengthen themselves significantly if they want to qualify for the top 4 places.

On the other hand, the player would be attracted to match again Donny Van de Beek with him he signed one of the best seasons of Ajax Amsterdam in recent years. In any case, the negotiations with De Jong’s agent continue and from England they hope to close the transfer next week.
