Manchester United told Barcelona he would NOT interrupt the bank to sign Frenkie de Jong, even though Erik ten Hag wanted to reunite with his former Ajax midfielder … The Catalans want to get back the £ 65 million they paid for him.
- Barcelona is believed to want to sell players this summer to raise money
- Frenkie de Jong, a valuable asset, is considered one that sells at the right price
- Erik ten Hag, the incoming head of Manchester United, knows the players from Ajax
- But United are not willing to throw their budget at one player with big money
Manchester United told Barcelona it would not ruin their budget because of a £ 70 million Frenkie de Jong summer deal.
De Jong is one of United’s main goals, and incoming manager Erik ten Hag would like to work with former Ajax midfielder again.
Barcelona wants to recover the £ 65 million that cost De Jong’s signature from Ajax in 2019.
Frenkie de Jong is a player who United reportedly admire and Barcelona is reportedly open to sales
The compromise remains a bit further. United made it clear to Barcy and De Jong that they could not entrust such a piece of their transfer funds to the Dutch star.
The Hag will have to work on a limited budget when it officially starts work next week because United missed the Champions League.
He is facing a major overhaul, with up to 10 players to leave, but the club is determined to be disciplined in the transfer market.
De Jong, 25, would rather stay at Nou Camp or move to the Champions League club if Barca decides to sell him.
Barcelona President Joan Laporta has admitted that he may have no choice but to withdraw some stars due to the club’s persistent financial problems.

“I don’t know if we’ll sell important players,” he said. “If we complete some deals, it may not be necessary.” Our financial situation is a priority. We will do what is best for the club. “
The Hag preferred to get a midfielder and forward to replace Edinson Cavani. The target is Darwin Nunez from Benfica.
The new manager may also step up in central defense amid speculation that he could attack Ajax for Jurrien Timber or Lisandra Martinez, although United still have options in this position even if Eric Bailly and Phil Jones leave.
Meanwhile, Juventus is trying to match Paris Saint-Germain’s offer to Paul Pogb. The French midfielder will probably speak to Real Madrid as well.
