The latest reports in the media suggest that Manchester United are firm favorites to sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona this summer.

Transfer: Report – Man United ready to agree £20.5million a year deal to secure signing
The well-known Catalan media outlet have mentioned that luring the Netherlands international is the absolute priority of new manager, Erik ten Hag. Internally, the two clubs agree that this is a profitable operation for everyone.
As far as De Jong’s preference is concerned, it is stated that the player wishes to stay at the Nou Camp but is not happy about the fact that the Spanish side would like to offload him for a hefty fee.
If the 25-year-old moves to Man United, he will not be able to take part in the UEFA Champions League. The dilemma is that he cannot choose a better sporting project. Why? Because the Old Trafford outfit are willing to reach the figures no one has offered.
Sport claim that the 20-time English champions have now focused all their efforts in order to persuade the player to join this summer. People close to the deal think that this transfer saga cannot be dragged on for too long.
The cards are on the table and in the next 15 days, Barca would accept the offer to sell De Jong to Man United. Xavi thinks that the midfielder is an important player but the Spanish legend believes it is even more important to have enough money to build his ambitious project.
Lastly, the news source have mentioned that by deciding to leave for the Red Devils, the former Ajax man will do Barcelona a huge (last) favor.

We are getting fed up with Man Utd Fc barber chair approach to decision making. We haven’t seen that club who knows exactly what they want and get it in a jiffy. Players like Nunez, De Jong, Pau Torres, Timbers will all end up with our rivals while we just sniff around and wait for aged retiring players. Sir Alex picked out Ngolo Kante as the best player from Leicester City EPL winning team but Man Utd bypassed him and was waiting for him to become an elderly statesman plagued with injuries to sign him. It is unfortunate what we have become. Scavengers that is what we are. We don’t even know when to keep a player and when to sell culminating in perpetual business loss in the transfer market. I just hope things drastically change for the sake of our beloved club and great fan base all over the world.
Useless club. Bet me, man useless united won’t sign Nunez, or Pau.
