The agent of Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong is set to travel to Spain in the next 48 hours to discuss the midfielder’s future at the club amid interest from Manchester United.

The Dutchman is a priority target for Erik ten Hag, who worked with the Netherlands international until his £73m move from Ajax to Barcelona in 2019.

De Jong would rather stay at the Camp Nou but the club are in a desperate financial position and need to sell before signing targets like Angel di Maria or Robert Lewandowski.

They are therefore ready to cash in on De Jong and Mundo Deportivo say the Dutchman’s agent is flying to Barcelona to hold talks with the club.

Barcelona are expected to inform Ali Dursun that De Jong is available for a transfer and that they are asking for a fee of around £70m.

De Jong has made it clear that Barcelona are his ‘dream club’ and that he wants to stay at Camp Nou.

However, he is ready to move once it’s clear he won’t be handed a deeper role in midfield from Xavi.

Midfield is a priority area for Ten Hag to strengthen following the departures of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.

That leaves United in the middle of the park and Andreas Pereira could get a chance to impress after being loaned to Flamengo.
