Manchester United could complete marquee summer transfer within three days

Posted by

Manchester United are said to be closing in on the transfer of Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong.

United have been battling to sign the Dutchman for much of the summer following the appointment of Erik ten Hag.

The Red Devils need additions to their midfield following the exits of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba, and it seems de Jong has been earmarked as one of those incomings.

Up until now, United have struggled to make progress on a deal, with Barca sticking to their £73million valuation, while de Jong himself has admitted he would prefer to stay at Camp Nou.

But it emerged over the weekend that United had made a breakthrough, and a report from The Times has now revealed some of the details.

It’s claimed a package worth £69million is expected to be agreed, and that could include add-ons.
