Frenkie De Jong transfer saga drags on: Latest on the €85m deal

The Frenkie De Jong transfer saga is showing no signs of ending any time soon. The three parties – Barcelona, Manchester United and the player, are wrapped up in a complicated position as of right now. 

The Spanish side has essentially given the green light to the transfer. Despite a lack of updates, talks between the two clubs have not collapsed yet. The final offer from Manchester United remains €65 million up front, plus €20 million in add-ons. However, the Dutchman is not willing to leave Camp Nou this summer. 

Frenkie De Jong transfer held up due to player demands 

The midfielder does not want to leave Barcelona, despite a reunion with Erik Ten Hag on the cards at Old Trafford. Moreover, the absence of Champions League football if he signs with Manchester United and their lack of success in recent years is proving to be a detriment for United’s hopes.

Right now, Frenkie De Jong is Barcelona’s most expensive asset who is on the market. While stars like Pedri and Ansu Fati might be more expensive, the club will not sell them under any circumstances. However, due to the current situation, they might cash in on the Dutchman since he has been hit-and-miss during his time at Camp Nou. 

De Jong’s arrival would be the third signing for United this summer, after Tyrell Malacia and potentially, Christian Eriksen. However, given his reluctance to leave Barcelona, there are doubts as to whether the move will actually happen.
