Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong move to Manchester United 95 percent done claims Spanish transfer expert.
According to transfer expert Gerard Romero on Twitter (h/t Express), Manchester United are on the verge of completing a move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Frankie de Jong has been a regular for the Catalan side ever since his move from Ajax Amsterdam, slotting in alongside Sergio Busquets in the middle of the pitch.
He joined Barca in 2019 after playing a crucial role in Ajax’s run to the semi-finals of the Champions League the previous campaign.
The Dutchman was part of a young team put together by Erik ten Hag, boasting future superstars like Hakim Ziyech, Donny van de Beek, and Matthijs de Ligt.
As they could not progress further than the semi-finals in the UCL, they managed to complete a domestic double in Holland.
