🚨 Laurie Whitwell (The Athletic) on @Frenkie de Jong deal: "There were progressive talks on what Man Utd were willing to give that Barça were willing to accept i.e. €65m guaranteed that's going to end up being around. "People at Barca still insist that they ultimately want more than that because they want to get €80m guaranteed basically which allows them to record the sale as a profit. It felt like both clubs have a good number of conversations on Monday. "There was a story last night of Frenkie de Jong being potentially unveiled by Man Utd in the weekend at Old Trafford. [I] Checked out on this and would be surprised if that happens. Clearly, it's going one way [right direction]." On @Malacia: "I wouldn't be surprised if it's announced in the coming days. Lyon pulled out of the race after acknowledging that Man Utd is the favourite destination for the player." (via United Journal)
