Manchester United agree terms with Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong


Manchester United have agreed terms with Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong but there is still work to be done if the Dutch international is back together with Erik ten Hag, according to the PA news agency.

Barca are believed to have an initial fee of €75m ($63.5m)

De Jong is understood to owe a significant amount in deferred wages from cashless Barcelona and the Dutchman will need to be persuaded to leave the La Liga giants.

But United certainly wouldn’t have been pursuing the 25-year-old all summer if they hadn’t believed he was ready to move to Old Trafford, where he would work under his former Ajax boss Ten Hag.

Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia has been the only signing of the summer so far but a verbal agreement has been reached with Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez’s signing is drawing closer.

United are in advanced talks to sign the Argentine defender from Ajax. A fee has reportedly been agreed to sign a player keen to move to Old Trafford.

Football director John Murtough and chief executive Richard Arnold traveled to Amsterdam to discuss the transfer, having also recently been to Barcelona to discuss De Jong.

The leading couple remained in Europe as United embarked on their pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia. Ten Hag’s men meet Melbourne Victory at the MCG on Friday after beating Liverpool 4-0 in Bangkok on Tuesday. Manchester United agree terms with Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong
