Another day, another report on Frenkie de Jong, who is close to leaving Barcelona to join Manchester United.
According to a report covered by Sport today (press image provided below), the 25-year-old midfielder, little by little, is getting closer to moving to Old Trafford.
The Spanish media outlet have mentioned that the difference between Man Utd’s best offer and Barcelona’s demands is an amount of 15 million euros.
If the 20-time English champions offer another 10 million euros in fixed fee and 5 million euros in add-ons, then the deal will be agreed between the two clubs.
After reaching an agreement with the Catalan club, Man Utd will negotiate the contract with De Jong and they are prepared to offer him a lucrative deal.
Sport claim that the Dutch international would agree personal terms that will make him earn more than what he is getting in Spain.
The former Ajax man currently earns around £15m-a-year i.e. £290,000 a week (The Guardian).
The Catalan source state that De Jong knows that he might have to leave the Nou Camp and he will depart if Barcelona asks him to.
In the coming days, the Blaugrana and the Red Devils hope to finalize the agreement. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds and will keep you updated.
