Barcelona urged to sell superstar midfielder if Man United make £70m bid this summer with Ten Hag keen to sign him



Barcelona urged to sell superstar midfielder if Man United make £70m bid this summer with Ten Hag keen to sign him

Barcelona are being urged to ‘take’ the money and run if Premier League giants Manchester United return with a big bid for Frenkie de Jong this summer.

Just last week, Blaugrana director Deco expressed serious reservations about the potential sales of Ronald Araujo and Frenkie de Jong, both of whom have been linked with Manchester United with varying degrees of seriousness over the last few windows

Deco even admitted that, if offered the chance to bring in one Kylian Mbappe with the proceeds made via the sale of two key players, he would still opt to retain the services of the Uruguayan centre-half and the club’s metronomic midfielder

That stance is likely to be challenged in the coming months, however.

According to Mundo Deportivo, De Jong is yet to sign a new contract that was offered to him three months ago.

Rumours linking Erik ten Hag’s former Ajax playmaker with a move to Old Trafford have reared their head again too, with La Liga expert Terry Gibson believing that – contrary to Deco’s own claims – Barcelona would jump at the chance to cash in should the opportunity arise.

“(De Jong is) a good player. But, when I’m looking at reports linking him with Chelsea and United for £70 – £80 million… yeah, take it,” Gibson, who represented the Red Devils in the 1980s, tells El Tel and Jon’s La Liga Weekly podcast.

“He’s an elite player. He costs a lot of money. I saw him linked with Chelsea at the weekend for £70 – £80 million, and I can’t see (Barcelona) turning that down.”
