Crazy Ball – The move for midfielder Frenkie de Jong to Old Trafford is getting closer when Manchester United and Barcelona have agreed a transfer deal for the player with a dowry of almost Rp. 1.3 trillion, or to be precise, Rp. 1.24 trillion.
Exclusive report from Talksport stated that the Premier League intends to be able to complete the transfer of the main target at least next week when they hope to quickly prepare the team for the new 2022/2023 season.
Erik ten Hag worked with Frenkie de Jong at Ajax Amsterdam and the midfielder was part of the Dutch squad that reached the Champions League semi-finals in 2018/19, before losing to Tottenham Hotspur in a dramatic way.
He is a key transfer target for the 52-year-old tactician who has now taken over at Old Trafford with the 25-year-old expected to be central to the manager’s project at the Premier League giants and his transfer expected to send a message to their rivals in the transfer window. .
Manchester United had previously offered Barcelona less than IDR 1 trillion for the transfer of Frenkie de Jong, with the offer immediately being rejected by La Liga because it was far below their valuation.
The Red Devils know that Blaugrana need to sell players in the midst of their financial problems and for that they are really serious and optimistic about sealing the deal, and now the transfer is one step away from being sealed after both clubs agreed a price of IDR 1.24 trillion for the transfer of the Dutch midfielder.
Now Frenkie de Jong will soon become manager Erik ten Hag’s first signing at Manchester United and it is believed that once his transfer is complete, the Dutch boss will immediately pursue another priority target in Ajax Amsterdam striker Antony.
