‘Frenkie de Jong for 70 to 80 million euros en route to Manchester United’

Sensational transfer news from Spain: Frenkie de Jong may trade FC Barcelona for Manchester United. According to Gerard Romero, a RAC1 Barça watcher sitting close to the fire, the transfer is 95 percent certain.
De Jong made the switch from Ajax to Barcelona three years ago and was almost always assured of a base place, but slowly but surely his future as a Barça player has come into question. In fact, according to Romero, the Dutch international is working on its final weeks at Camp Nou.
Manchester United, where Erik ten Hag will soon be working, is working on the arrival of De Jong, it sounds. In fact, the probability of making ends meet in the mega-transfer is estimated at 95 percent. Barcelona is reportedly demanding seventy to eighty million euros.
According to Romero, De Jong‘s possible departure is ‘purely an economic issue‘: Barcelona urgently needs money and fears that if the midfielder does not improve quickly, he will lose its value. The situation may still change, adds the Barça watcher.
De Jong has a contract in Barcelona until mid-2026, and this is not the first time he has been associated with a transfer. Previously, he was linked to Bayern Munich. Manchester United needs midfielders as Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic are supposedly leaving transfer-free.
Xavi recently emphasized that he was happy with De Jong. Frenkie can mark an era with his qualities. He is of a very high level and must continue to score goals, give assists and take the lead. He can be one of the best midfielders in the world in the coming years. If it’
s up to me, he stays for many years to come, the Barça trainer recorded.
