Manchester United have been linked with Frenkie de Jong for a long time and the supporters would love the latest reports going on in the media.
According to an exclusive story covered by Jeremy Cross for The Daily Star (press image provided below), Man United have agreed a deal in principle with Barcelona to lure the 25-year-old midfielder.
The journalist has mentioned that De Jong, who at first did not want to join the Red Devils due to lack of Champions League football, has now agreed to move to Old Trafford.
It is stated that new manager, Erik ten Hag, is close to completing his first signing for Man United by reuniting with De Jong.
The Premier League club are confident that the move will be sealed for a fee worth £70million. The 20-time English champions are prepared to make a £60million initial payment and the remaining £10million in bonuses.
De Jong rose to fame at Ajax under the management of Ten Hag. He helped the Dutch side win the league and the cup double before joining Barcelona in 2019.
Unfortunately, the Netherlands star has never been able to showcase his best qualities at the Nou Camp because veteran, Busquets, has mainly played in his preferred position.
Ten Hag knows all about the qualities of De Jong and can get the best out of him at Old Trafford. This transfer saga has dragged on for far too long but seems that it will end soon with De Jong joining Man United.
