Frenkie de Jong seems to be the topic of move rumours this off-season, with Barcelona hoping to profit in on the 25-year-old to help with their economic struggles. Manchester United reportedly appeared as the most potential bidder for the Netherlands international, with fresh coach Erik ten Hag targeting him. 

Manchester United seeks to replace Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic in their centre, which has been depleted by their departures. Only Fred, Scott McTominay, and Donny van de Beek continue for ten Hag amid a rocky loan move at Everton in the latter part of the previous campaign.

Manchester United has set Frenkie De Jong a key objective in this regard since he might bring characteristics to the team that the present playmakers do not. Barcelona, as previously said, are willing to trade their leading player owing to the current financial problems and hopes to complete a transaction by the conclusion of the month.

Barcelona rejected Manchester United’s initial approach of €60 million (£51.3 million) with a potential €10 million in add-ons for Frenkie de Jong. The teams are still in communication, with United boss Erik ten Hag deeming the Netherlands midfielder of prime importance in his debut summer in charge. At Ajax, the two partnered for a year and a half.

However, nothing has changed between Manchester United and Fc Barcelona following the rejection of the opening since the rejection of the opening bid. Fc Barcelona has set a fee which would be nothing less than €85 million per Fabrizio Romano.


Erik ten Hag formerly coached with De Jong at Ajax and is desperate to recruit the Netherlands star as his maiden United player. Ten Hag, who has inked a three-year agreement at Old Trafford, is well aware that additions are required to flip the club’s circumstances over.

De Jong is priced at around €85 million by Barcelona, who are interested in selling due to their financial difficulties. An agreement will make it much more possible for them to sign players like Bernardo Silva of Manchester City and Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich. United have advanced to the Europa League for the upcoming campaign, but they are hoping that the appearance of Ten Hag and their projected rebuilding would encourage the 25-year-old to sign.
