The Manchester United team may not be done with transfers for this summer. On Tuesday, the Red Devils announced the signing of winger Antoni from Ajax for nearly €100 million, and the club are also close to signing goalkeeper Martin Dubravka from Newcastle, who is rumored to be David De Gea’s back-up, and with his signing it was thought that an end to incoming transfers at Old Trafford.
Now, however, journalist Rudy Galetti reports that the Frankie De Jong saga continues. According to him, talks between Manchester United, Barcelona and the midfielder’s agent are ongoing and the next few hours will be decisive for the situation.
The Dutchman was one of the main targets of the “Red Devils”, and even the two clubs had agreed on the amount of the possible transfer, but De Jong himself refused the opportunity to move to United, as he wants to stay at the “Camp Nou”. Earlier, there were reports that the “Catalans” gave the midfielder an ultimatum that he should either reduce his salary or leave.
What the final outcome will be will become clear soon because the transfer window closes this Thursday evening.
