The Red Devils are not giving up and are still trying to secure the services of the excellent Barcelona midfielder.
Looking ahead to the 2019/2020 season and before falling squarely into the deep and well-known crisis, Barcelona he was able to spend a real fortune to secure the services of Frenkie de Jong, a young and eminent Dutch midfielder who had just dazzled locals and foreigners by defending the jersey of a Ajax unstoppable.
They were nothing more and nothing less than 75 million euros plus another 11 million of the same currency in variables. This operation filled with enthusiasm and enthusiasm each of the Barcelona supporters, captivated by the quality of the fine and talented midfielder from the minor divisions of the modest William II.
This is how De Jong quickly established himself in the first team. However, after three seasons defending the Barcelona shirt, we are able to say that the 25-year-old midfielder hasn’t played as expected, which is why the Blaugrana are ready to open the transfer doors for him. .
In this direction, Manchester United, another of the biggest and most powerful teams in the world, pulled out all the stops to win the international with the Dutch national team. This is how the Red Devils made several offers, which were rejected by the Barcelona board, who deemed them insufficient.
New offer for De Jong
As British outlet ‘Daily Mail’ reported on Sunday, Manchester United haven’t given up on their quest to keep the midfielder who has bagged 13 goals and 16 assists after 140 official engagements with Barcelona. That’s why, in the last hours, he sent a new offer.
This translates into the resounding figure of 75 million euros fixed plus an additional 10 million of said currency in variables. However, in parallel, those now strategically commissioned by Erik ten Hag would take over a debt that Barcelona owes to the player himself, which translates to 20 million euros.
On the other hand, those of Old Trafford have already agreed on the figures with the midfielder who is preparing to represent his country at the Qatar 2022 World Cup. There is talk of a lucrative contract for 27,800,000 euros per season. That is more than 2,300,000 euros per month. Yes, a real bestiality that excites De Jong with the transfer.
