Frenkie de Jong on his way to Manchester United.
With the arrival of manager Erik ten Hag next season, Manchester United intend to launch a new cycle after a particularly disappointing 2021-2022 financial year. To renew his workforce, the Dutch technician will have significant financial resources.
And with this idea in mind, the current coach of Ajax Amsterdam has already given some priorities to the Mancunian leaders.
Frenkie de Jong on his way to United!
Thus, in the midfield, a name comes up with insistence to strengthen the Red Devils group: FC Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong. Regularly present on the departure of the Blaugrana at the approach of this period of transfers, the talent of 25 years will take the direction of the current 6th in the Premier League, according to the journalist Gerard Romero, generally very well informed on the movements of the Catalan club.
At the request of ten Hag, the decision makers of Manchester United are seriously active to recover the Batavian with an operation estimated between 70 and 80 million euros! With the upcoming departure of Paul Pogba, at the end of his contract in June, the former Ajax player would embody a nice reinforcement in this sector of play to stick to the offensive and player philosophy desired by the 52-year-old MU manager.
The Bara is looking for money
How to explain the decision of Bara on this file? First of all, the Blaugrana were owed by the mixed performance of the native of Arkel, too often irregular. Then, the current 2nd in La Liga is still facing major financial problems. With the popularity rating of the Dutchman, Bara wants to take this opportunity to bail out his coffers and thus avoid seeing him potentially lose value by achieving another average season. Finally, this position, Frenkie de Jong is considered expendable because of the qualities of Pedri, Gavi or Nico. A win-win deal?
