Desperation to land de Jong will see Man United offer four players to Barcelona

Posted by

Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong would appear to be a man in demand at present, with news that Man United are willing to offer four of their players to help sweeten any deal to see the Dutchman reunited with his Ajax manager, Erik ten Hag.

The Catalan club’s financial struggles have been well documented, and de Jong is one of a handful of players that could earn Barcelona a pretty penny in the transfer market.

It would weaken them significantly in midfield of course, however, some difficult decisions are still going to have to be made by Joan Laporta and his board.

Any new manager coming in after Xavi may always want to have his arguments heard, but ultimately the will of the club is likely to come first in this instance.

According to the Daily Express (h/t Fichajes), the Red Devils will offer as many as four players to Barca; Mason Greenwood, Antony, Scott McTominay and Jadon Sancho.

All of the quartet have skills that could benefit the Catalans, though finances are likely to come first.

One of the four with a significant cash injection would surely be preferred, though which player – if any – Barca go for is anyone’s guess at this stage.

Notwithstanding that any move is dependant on de Jong himself agreeing to the switch.
