Frenkie de Jong, the Barcelona star, is finally keen on a transfer to Manchester United, thanks to the influence of his former El Clasico rival.
The Dutch midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for some time, but it now appears that he is ready to make the switch.
De Jong, who joined Barcelona from Ajax in 2019, has been a key player for the Catalan giants since his arrival. He has made over 50 appearances for the club, scoring four goals and providing four assists.
However, his future at the Camp Nou has been in doubt in recent months, with reports suggesting that he could be on his way out of the club.
Now, it appears that de Jong is finally ready to make the move to Manchester United, thanks to the influence of his former El Clasico rival, Sergio Ramos.
Ramos, who is currently at Real Madrid, is said to have been in contact with de Jong in recent weeks, encouraging him to make the move to Old Trafford.
The Spanish defender is said to have told de Jong that he would be a great fit for the club and that he would be a key player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
De Jong is said to have been impressed by Ramos’ words and is now ready to make the move to Manchester United.
The 23-year-old is expected to cost the Red Devils around £50 million, but it is thought that the club are willing to pay the fee in order to secure his signature.
If the move does go through, it will be a major coup for Manchester United, as de Jong is one of the most highly-rated midfielders in Europe.
He is a technically gifted player, with an excellent passing range and an eye for goal. He is also a hard-working player, who is capable of playing in a variety of positions.
De Jong’s arrival at Old Trafford would be a major boost for the club, as they look to challenge for the Premier League title next season.
It remains to be seen whether the move will go through, but it appears that de Jong is finally ready to make the switch to Manchester United, thanks to the influence of his former El Clasico rival, Sergio Ramos.
