MANCHESTER United's Erik Ten Hag has expressed his desire to reunite with Barcelona midfielder, Frankie De Jong, when he takes charge of the club by month-end.

De jong joined Barcelona in 2019  from Ajax in the summer in a deal worth €75m (£64m), plus a further €11m (£9m/$11m) in add-ons, while handing him a salary of €12m-a-season and a contract that includes a €400m (£342m/$417m) release clause.

With Barcelona hit with a recent financial crisis, reports suggest that the club will be willing to let go of the versatile midfielder for a fee in the region of €60M and could even go as low as €50M when the transfer window opens.

In fact, Barcelona will be open to negotiate any offer that comes for any of their players, excluding Ansu Fati, Pedri, Gavi, Ferran Torres, Ronald Araujo and Eric Garcia which the club termed "Untouchable".
