Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano provides another Frenkie de Jong update

Manchester United: Fabrizio Romano provides another Frenkie de Jong update -Manchester United News

Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Manchester United and Barcelona are ‘finally’ getting closer to an agreement for Frenkie de Jong.

The Lowdown: De Jong transfer saga

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old ever since Erik ten Hag was announced as the new United manager towards the end of April.

Progress has been extremely slow regarding a move to Old Trafford, with reports suggesting that Ten Hag had persuaded De Jong to swap Spain for England.

Agreeing on a fee has proven the trickiest part of a potential transfer, with United having an opening offer worth €70m (£60.4m) in total turned down earlier this month.

The Latest: Romano’s update

Romano took to Twitter on Monday evening, revealing that United and Barcelona have now had ‘new direct contact’.

He added that ‘the agreement is finally getting closer as clubs are in talks about add-ons to reach €85m full package’, with the proposed deal potentially working out at somewhere in the region of £73m.

The Verdict: Looking good

Romano’s update of an agreement edging closer is a big update considering the slow progress, it should be regarded as positive news from a Red Devils perspective.

However, until a transfer is signed on the dotted line from everyone involved, United supporters shouldn’t be getting ahead of themselves just yet.

Dharmesh Sheth has recently claimed that Old Trafford chiefs are ‘still prepared to walk away if they don’t get a reasonable deal’, but it looks as if everyone may come away from this saga happy, with De Jong potentially becoming the first marquee signing of the Ten Hag era in Manchester.
