Manchester United to offer Frenkie De Jong the highest wages in the Premier League for 2022 move

Manchester United are ready to table a huge bid to sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona. Erik Ten Hag is keen to reunite with his former Ajax colleague, but the player doesn’t want to make the move to Old Trafford. 

One of the reasons behind it is due to the absence of Champions League football. The other is unrest in the squad, with the club undergoing a rebuild phase right now. Moreover, he is also owed £17 million in wages by Barcelona, which he isn’t willing to let go of. 

Frenkie de Jong transfer saga enters new chapter 

Manchester United and Barcelona have an agreement on the €85 million transfer fee. But, the player doesn’t want to leave Camp Nou this summer. As a result, the transfer is in a complicated phase right now. 

According to Sport, Manchester United are now willing to offer Frenkie de Jong his deferred wages from Barcelona. They are also planning a huge £450,000 per week contract for him which would make him one of the top earners in the Premier League.

The player is considering Chelsea as an option if he leaves Barcelona this summer. The presence of Champions League football is a big plus, and the sporting project is also to his liking there. 

De Jong isn’t willing to take a pay cut to stay at Barcelona, as he wants the club to honour their initial contract. So, he might have to be forced out of the club to cope with the La Liga financial fair play rules.
