Barca reveal de Jong price tag

Following reports that Manchester United had made contact with Barcelona over the availability of midfielder Frenkie de Jong this summer, who is at the top of their list of transfer targets this summer, the Spanish outfit have now informed the Red Devils with their asking price for the Dutchman.

According to The Sun , Barca are planning to recoup the vast majority of the £63.3 million fee they paid Ajax for the 25-year-old just three years ago, due to their restricted financial situation and the inability to provide any wiggle room as a result.

This is set to cause problems for Erik ten Hag and co. who’s transfer budget for the summer is set to be limited to just £100m due to the club’s inability to qualify for the Champions League, and the Dutchman will not want to blow the majority of that on one player.

Man Utd ‘best positioned’ to sign Nunez

Erik ten Hag remains intent on signing a new striker this summer as he looks to bolster his options in that area of the field and following reports of interest in Benfica forward Darwin Nunez, it has now been revealed that Manchester United are one of the favourites to sign him.

According to Record , via Sport Witness , the Red Devils are the ‘best positioned’ to sign the Uruguayan forward this summer but they are set to face stiff competition from Paris Saint-Germain for his signature, who are much better off than ten Hag’s side when it comes to money.

Benfica hope to make a minimum of €100m from the sale but with United’s budget limited to just £100m before player sales in the upcoming window, they may struggle to put a deal together if it takes up the majority of their budget.
