De Jong resigned: Ready to say yes to Manchester United – Football World – Transfers

The Manchester United team is not giving up on Frankie de Jong. The Red Devils have been chasing him all summer and the transfer market is entering its final stages, but he could be about to make a long-awaited breakthrough.

Sport claim that the Dutch midfielder has admitted in the Barcelona dressing room that he could move to Manchester United this summer. It is believed that only his consent stands in the way of the deal, as both clubs have an interest in it becoming a reality.

“Mundo Deportivo” adds that at “Old Trafford” they are ready to do anything to take De Jong, who, however, still has serious interest from Chelsea. Despite the obstacles, United appear to be preparing to go full throttle, aware of the need to step up their pursuit as the end of the window approaches.

The Red Devils cannot offer the Netherlands international a Champions League spot, unlike Chelsea. However, United manager Erik ten Hag worked with De Jong at Ajax and will be hoping that link will help convince the player to switch Barcelona to Manchester.

The president of the “Catalans” Joan Laporta has already publicly stated that he wants to keep Frenkie de Jong. However, in recent days it has been reported that the club have threatened the midfielder with legal action over his contract and have asked him to take a serious pay cut if he does not agree to leave.

De Jong is disappointed with these actions by Barca and as a result, if he decides to leave Camp Nou, it will not make things easy for Barcelona. If there is a deal, it probably won’t happen until the end of August.
