United are expected to make an improved bid for Frenkie de Jong after having a £60m offer turned down, but that is likely to fall short of Barcelona’s valuation – who are preparing to hold out for a fee around the £70m mark

Frenkie de Jong knows how keen Barcelona are to offload him and has now got his head around leaving the Nou Camp. Personal terms of around £250,000-a-week will not be an issue for mufc.

Football director John Murtough is holding talks with his Barcelona counterparts.

United’s interest in Eriksen would not rule out a move for Frenkie de Jong as talks continue with Barcelona – United could sign both for Erik ten Hag this summer.

Eriksen has offers from Spurs, Everton and Brentford, but mufc have stepped up their interest in him. They see Frenkie de Jong as a different type of midfielder and will continue negotiations with Barcelona.

Mufc have yet to make a formal bid for Frenkie de Jong, but are prepared to walk away and pursue other options if the two sides cannot compromise on price.

A new striker is mufc’s other priority. They could also sign a defensive midfielder, central defender, right-back and winger depending on Erik ten Hag’s wishes, number of outgoing players and the club’s budget constraints.
