Manchester United Target Has A 90% Chance Of Joining The Club
Manchester United have been pursuing the signing of Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona for some time now, with negotiations yet to be finalized.
According to AS (via Sport Witness), negotiations are ongoing between Barcelona and Manchester United for the transfer of De Jong, but a deal is yet to be completed.
Manchester United appear determined to get their number one transfer target, but the Spanish club aren’t willing to let him go cheaply.

With Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic out the door, it’s no surprise to see Erik ten Hag targeting a midfielder this summer.

The Premier League is, of course, a different style to Spain, but De Jong has shown his quality in the Champions League as well as for his country.
