The Blaugrana are analyzing the situation of the team and there will be very few non-transferable stars.

De Jong earns a ‘medium-high’ salary but he wants to earn way more and the Nou Camp outfit may not be able to afford big figures due to economic concerns.

Therefore, Barca, who do consider him as an integral part of the team, are going to listen to proposals.

Man Utd are waiting for the right time and are prepared to move in to finally sign the 26-year-old, who did wonders at Ajax under the management of Erik ten Hag.

Apart from the Red Devils, Paris Saint-Germain are preparing for life after Mbappe and want the Netherlands international to be part of the future project.

De Jong is considered one of the best deep lying midfielders in the world, who sits in front of the back four and dominates things in the center of the park.

Reports in Spain indicate Barca would demand a fee of £85.5m to offload the former Eredivisie midfielder.

Man Utd must reinforce the No.6 position at Old Trafford. Two years ago, after failing to lure the Oranje star, they splashed the cash on Casemiro.

The Brazil captain is past his prime and must be replaced in the next transfer window.

In your opinion, should Man Utd bid £85.5m to finally sign Frenkie de Jong?
