WHY IS FRENKIE DE JONG NOT HAPPY WITH THE TRANSFER NEGOTIATIONS?

De Jong knows the current economic situation of Barcelona. He knows the reasons as to why they are trying to sell him. However, he is deeply displeased with the manner in which they have approached his transfer. The player thinks he has been left isolated in the negotiation process.

WHERE DOES MANCHESTER UNITED STAND IN THESE NEGOTIATIONS?

The other day Barca accept the offer, but then De Jong says he has changed his mind. However, the Dutch midfielder is grateful for the level of interest by United for his signature.

The new boss of United Erik Ten Hag is desperately trying to get him to Old Trafford. He even called the midfielder to convince him to come to Manchester United. However, the negotiation process with Barca and the player is very difficult at the moment. Although, the new boss remains optimistic about the transfer. The manager is willing to wait for the transfer to progress in the right direction.

The club are also hopeful that their patience will pay at the end of the window. This is a transfer saga that has dragged on for several months.
