Manchester United preparing final offer to sign Frenkie de Jong

Manchester United’s pursuit of Frenkie de Jong is in the endgame, with the Red Devils reportedly preparing their final bid for the Barcelona midfielder.

According to a report by Spanish publication SPORT, Manchester United will soon end the Frenkie de Jong saga as they prepare their latest bid for the Barcelona midfielder. The Red Devils will set their sights on alternatives if the latest proposal doesn’t help.

Frenkie de Jong’s transfer saga has so far been one of the defining stories of the summer transfer period. The Dutch midfielder has been the scapegoat for Barcelona to ease the wage bill and register the new signings while the two sides negotiate deferred wages. All this time, the Blaugrana and Manchester United have agreed a deal for de Jong.

But the 25-year-old has no interest in joining Manchester United this summer, as he does not want to play in the UEFA Europa League next season. At the same time, De Jong would like to stay with FC Barcelona after the summer transfer window, despite the issue of deferred wages.

The Red Devils must invest in a new midfielder this summer after seeing Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba leave Old Trafford. The departure of Pogba in particular has hindered Manchester United creatively, despite the transfer-free arrival of Christian Eriksen.

Frenkie de Jong has thus emerged as a viable target for Manchester United, with the Red Devils reportedly poised to offer a lucrative contract to seduce the Barcelona midfielder. But de Jong has so far resisted the rapprochement of Manchester United and he is hesitant to leave Barcelona.

But the Premier League will soon present their final proposal to De Jong, which they believe should be tempting enough to seal the deal. But Manchester United will re-enter the market to identify the alternatives if De Jong remains steadfast in his stance despite Barcelona’s desperation to sack him.

Meanwhile, the Catalan giants continue to look for ways to relieve De Jong, and recent reports claim they are considering loaning him out. At the same time, Xavi Hernandez and Barcelona president Joan Laporta insist they will not sell the Dutch midfielder. So there is no real chance that De Jong will leave Barcelona, ​​not least to go to Manchester United.
