Manchester United are in no mood of giving up the pursuit of Frenkie de Jong and the latest reports are intriguing.
Spanish outlet AS cite reports in the Netherlands (press image provided below) and claim that United will return to the starting line to finally convince the midfielder to move to Old Trafford.
News – Man Utd offered £250,000 a week deal after agreeing fee – Decision made
The Old Trafford outfit presented an offer in mid-July and it was turned down by the former Ajax midfielder.
Now, Man Utd will offer completely new terms, much more lucrative than the last proposal to ensure that De Jong ends up joining the club before the transfer deadline ends next month.
AS claim the Red Devils already have an agreement in principle with Barcelona and we know that the fee is around £71million (via Mundo Deportivo).
It remains to be seen whether Man Utd’s incoming new offer will be good enough to agree terms with De Jong.
The Madrid based news source have mentioned that the 25-year-old star is still not sure about moving to Ten Hag’s side as they will not be playing in the Champions League.
De Jong only featured in the second half against Rayo Vallecano and aims to be part of the starting XI when Barca will collide vs Real Sociedad on Sunday.
It is reported that Man City are asking for a mammoth fee for Bernardo Silva and the Catalan club may fail to lure the Portuguese star. So, they might hold on to the Dutch midfielder. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the last two weeks of the transfer window and will keep you updated.
