Manchester United have reportedly verbally agreed a fee with Barcelona for the signing of Frenkie de Jong, according to transfer expert Alex Crook.

Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold was in Spain on Monday to seal the transfer and it is now been reported that an agreement for De Jong has been reached between United and Barcelona.

United boss Erik ten Hag is keen on reuniting with De Jong at Man United after working with the midfielder at Ajax.

After losing Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic this summer, a midfielder has been high on Ten Hag’s priority list.

De Jong is reportedly open to joining Man United and the Red Devils are hoping to conclude the deal for the midfielder by Friday.

Meanwhile, Man City striker Erling Haaland has sent a warning Man United.

During his unveiling, when asked which team he was looking forward to playing against the most, Haaland replied: “I don’t want to say the words, but… Manchester United.”

Man United tried signing the Norway international before he joined Borussia Dortmund in 2020.
