Manchester United are making progress in their bid to sign midfielder Frenkie De Jong from Barcelona.
That’s according to a recent breaking news report from Sky Sports, who claim the Red Devils and Xavi’s La Liga giants have reached a ‘broad agreement’ for De Jong.
The fee discussed is believed to be £56m (€65m) plus performance-related add-ons.
De Jong and new United boss Erik ten Hag know each other well following their time spent working together with Ajax.
The United-faithful, who can start getting excited about the prospect of De Jong playing at Old Trafford, will be relieved to hear that their first big-name signing is edging closer to becoming a reality.
