Manchester United are ready to make a last ditch effort to sign Frenkie De Jong. The “Red Devils”, even though they are clear that the Dutch midfielder does not want to change environment this summer (because Man. United does not play in the Champions League), continue to pressurize to fulfill the great desire of coach Ten Hag.
The problem is not with Barça, with which the English club reached an agreement for a transfer of 75 million euros, plus another 10 in variables. The job is to convince the player. United believe they can do so with a final bid.
The English club are keen to make the Dutch midfielder the club’s highest paid player on £450,000 a week. And not only that. The “Red Devils” are ready to pay off the arrears that Barcelona has, which reach the figure of 17 million pounds.
If De Jong decides not to leave Barca, he already knows he will have to accept a significant pay cut.
