The English club are convinced they will be able to sign him if the player reaches an agreement with Barça
Manchester United will not give up on the signing of Frenkie de Jong. The English club considers him an important strategic addition and will wait until the end of August, if necessary, for him to lead their revival, according to the Manchester Evening News. United hoped to have already finalized the deal but everything is at a standstill due to the Dutchman's salary problems with Barça. The red devils are hopeful that everything will be sorted out soon. They reached an agreement with the Blaugrana club earlier in the window, just waiting for the player to give the green signal.
At United, they have worked hard to formalize the priority signing for their coach, Erik Ten Hag, and consider that the deal is in its final stages. If they have come this far it is because the player has given signs that he would be willing to play for the club and they do not believe reports that De Jong would prioritize other options to play in the Champions League. Now everything hinges on his salary issue being taken care of.
Barça have been open about wanting De Jong to pursue his future elsewhere from Camp Nou. The Blaugrana club would welcome a transfer with over 80 million euros to pursue their final transfer targets for this window. Xavi's dream is to sign Bernardo Silva to complete a dream squad.
