Manchester United close in on agreement with Barcelona for De Jong

Manchester United are closing in on a deal to sign Erik ten Hag’s prime target Frenkie de Jona, with the transfer saga dragging on for over a month.

According to Goal, Manchester United are closing in on an agreement with Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong, with growing confidence from the Premier League club that a deal will be reached for the Netherlands international.

While there is still some way to go before an agreement is officially reached, sources have told Goal’s James Robson that United are becoming increasingly optimistic they will get their man.

Although fans have rightly questioned why it takes the club so long to complete transfer deals, United have always been convinced that the Catalan club want to sell. For financial reasons, or not, it was clear from the moment the transfer window opens that Barcelona were willing to cash in on De Jong.

Ten Hag has decided that he wants to build his United team around De Jong, so this is fantastic news for the new manager.

A report from Spain, as per Sport, claims there has finally been a breakthrough in negotiations and they echo what the Goal report about De Jong becoming increasingly likely to become a Red.

Hopefully it’s announced soon!

Once announced, De Jong fans will be very excited about the news. De Jong is such an excellent footballer. He has huge fans around the world no matter on social media or all around the world. Most Manchester United fans also welcomed him to the club. The fans customised De Jong’s images on the court into posters, custom stickers, custom pins, etc. to express their support and love for him. They expect De Jong to continue his excellence at Manchester United.

  1. Why is it that is taking so long for man utd to sign even one player although this one is not even officially done?🤷

    1. I have had one slight thought about this that does not excuse it completely but does offer SOME possible explanation of why this always seems the case…bc even despite how crap we are now it is still virtually common knowledge that financially/commercially we are one of if not the biggest club in england and in the world EVERYclub knows,especially with our recent history, that we offer poss best chance for them to get maximum prophet so- especially with transfers targets that become public knowledge and arehigh profile like fdj, we have to spend sooo much time nigling and negotiating lest we get a maguire sitch (who is seriously hampered by that fee imo)

  2. Good. It’s been long time coming! Let’s finish this transfer and move on to other targets.

  3. Man United are playing waiting game because most of our targets are snapped under our noses. Darwin’s case is one of it. Those offering CL football will wait for United to go after a player them steal the player from us because we can offer CL to them. Darwin was set for United, Liverpool came from nowhere and signed him. Anthony the Et wants, other Epl. Club are going after him now, because of other epl interest in Anthony Ajax increased their asking price from 40mil to £50+. The boy may ditch United for CL football if we don’t act fast.
