Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag, has instructed transfer chiefs at the club not to relent in their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder, Frenkie De Jong.

Ten Hag is very keen on a reunion with the Dutchman, who he coached during his time at Ajax.

The transfer saga has rumbled on for over three months now, but the Red Devils remain undeterred in their pursuit of De Jong.

De Jong is said to be happy at Barcelona, but Barca’s financial issues mean the player’s exit would be logical, especially since they would need to appease LaLiga and register a whole host of new signings.

A deal that could rise to seventy two million pounds was tentatively agreed between the two clubs last month.

The holdup in the deal is an outstanding amount of around seventeen million pounds in back payments owed to De Jong by Barca after deferring payments on his wages during the pandemic.
