Man United Ready To Offer €70m To Sign FC Barcelona Star Frenkie De Jong

Manchester United are “confident” that FC Barcelona is going to lower their asking price for Frenkie De Jong as well as the Red Devils might get back with a bid of €70m for the Dutch midfielder, based on accounts in the British press..

The Guardian is claiming that the Red Devils feel certain the Spanish club will likely be happy to reduce their asking price for the midfielder resulting from their immediate need to raise money this summer.

Precisely the same report states that, as is widely reported elsewhere in recent times, Manchester United have failed with a bid of €60m (£51.3m) along with a possible €10m in add ons in recent times – though the Red Devils can now go back with a longer offer of €70m plus add ons for the talented midfielder.

Based on the story, the Premier League club feel confident in their bid to sign De Jong this summer, thanks primarily to the Spanish outfit’s tough fiscal position and also not enough suitors from elsewhere..

The Guardian describe De Jong as brand-new Manchester United boss Erik 10 Hag’s “prime target” for the summer transfer window as the Dutchman appears to state his squad in front of the first season of his in charge.

The story likewise says that Ajax defender Jurrien Timber – that has been connected with a move to Old Trafford this summer – is set to remain at the Dutch club..

Meanwhile, Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano has reported that De Jong himself is “still calm” regarding his future despite the speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford this summer.

Posting on the personal Twitter account of his on Friday, the journalist confirmed that Manchester United continue to be in immediate exposure to FC Barcelona in regards to a deal for De Jong.

“Manchester Barca and United, still in immediate communication for Frenkie De Jong. Deal still on, the salary of his is going to be truly huge next season – this’s the primary problem for Barca.

“€60m plus €10m bid turned down last week – Barca want €85m fee. Frenkie, continue to relax and waiting..
