Man United news: Frenkie de Jong fee agreed as double transfer details emerge

New Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag has made his intentions clear at the football club with an especially early return to pre-season training.

The Dutchman had the United squad back at Carrington on Monday, as he seeks to get a strong read on the group of players that ended last season with United’s worst ever Premier League points total.

Fans will be pleased to see those footballers being put through their paces and delighted to see apparent developments on the club’s attempt to sign a couple of transfer targets.

What players at United are most likely to make significant improvements under Ten Hag? Let us know in the comments section below!

United strike again after De Jong agreement

Having agreed a deal with Barcelona to bring midfielder Frenkie de Jong to the club, the Red Devils have moved quickly to secure one of the Dutchman’s compatriots.

Feyenoord sporting director Frank Arnesen has confirmed that an offer has been accepted from United for their left-back Tyrell Malacia. The bid is believed to have been in the region of £13 million, with the potential to rise to £15 million

While Malacia is one for the future, De Jong will be expected to come in and make a big impact under Ten Hag. The 25-year-old was rated as one of the best midfielders in the world before he moved to Barcelona and with the agreement between the Catalan giants and United said to be around £70 million, there will be plenty of focus on the playmaker.

De Jong details emerge

While United could end up paying £70 million for the signing of De Jong, they will part with £56 million up front.

Should the add-ons be paid, Barcelona will be making back the £70 million they parted with in 2019 to sign the then Ajax sensation. Since making the transfer to the Camp Nou, De Jong has enjoyed some excellent moments but has been eclipsed by rising stars like Pedri and Gavi.

In terms of his salary, the Dutch international will likely take home around £250,000-a-week, making him one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League over the course of his five-year deal.

Ten Hag makes early changes

Ten Hag took United training for the first time on Monday as the team made an early return to pre-season.

The Dutchman is said to have wasted no time in putting his mark on the group at Carrington, with some key changes made in an attempt to quickly improve the quality of preparation put in by the team.

“This included more varied training drills to increase teamwork and understanding of team roles and double sessions to increase fitness to match his desired physical demands,” reported Colin Millar. “He also asked for the grass to be cut to a specific length to improve passing speed and has made it compulsory for players to dine together during training days to bolster team spirit.”

Ten Hag is also said to have held a number of meetings with players and staff in his early days as manager, along with implementing an earlier start time of 9 a.m. for training sessions.
