Frenkie de Jong ‘BLOCKING Man Utd transfer’ despite club striking £72m deal with Barcelona


FRENKIE DE JONG is “blocking” a move to Manchester United, according to reports.

The Red Devils have agreed a fee in the region of £72million with Barcelona to sign the midfielder.

De Jong, however, is yet to be convinced that he should move to Old Trafford.

According to Diario Sport, he would rather stay and fight for his place at Barcelona.

Boss Xavi prefers other options, having added Franck Kessie to a midfield pool already including Pedri, Gavi and Sergio Busquets.

De Jong has reportedly been told that he either needs to take a cut on his £100,000 a week wages, or leave the club this summer – with the Dutchman unhappy at the ultimatum.

Despite their financial woes, Barcelona have pressed on with signing players this summer.

Kessie and Andreas Christensen have arrived on free transfers, while they have sealed a £58m deal for Raphinha.

These signings won’t be able to be registered, however, unless Barca raise money through selling De Jong.

The Catalan giants have also reportedly asked the former Ajax ace to defer £14.3m in unpaid wages, with the star wanting the matter resolved before he agrees to a potential transfer.


Man United chiefs Richard Arnold and John Murtough have been in Barcelona trying to sew up a deal this week.

The Red Devils have so far only signed full-back Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord this summer, although others are set to follow.

Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed a three-year deal, while United have had a £46m bid accepted by Ajax for defender Lisandro Martinez.
