Man Utd ready to offer £60 - £70M for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong
Manchester United are said to be closing on a deal for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.
According to Spanish reporter Gerard Romero, Barcelona needs to sell players for "purely economic reasons" as they look to balance the books.
With De Jong having failed to make himself a key player, he could be expendable.
A move to Man United may be an attractive one, as he could link up with his former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.
De Jong will cost the Red Devils between £60million and £70m.
Barca could yet change their minds, although they hold concerns about keeping their midfielder another year.
Club chiefs reckon that should De Jong stay and have a poor season, his value could plummet further.
