Manchester United have set a date to complete the signing of Frankie de Jong from Barcelona.
The Red Devils are aiming to finalise everything about the player’s transfer by June 30, talkSPORT reports
Erik ten Hag’s side are close to reaching agreement with Barcelona for the Holland international in a fee in the region of £68million.
De Jong is no stranger to Ten Hag, with the duo having worked together at Ajax before the midfielder joined Barcelona in 2019.
It has taken the two clubs a little while to get over the line, mainly due to the negotiations over the price tag placed on the player by Barcelona.
The Red Devils will hope that De Jong’s arrivals will lead to a flurry of deals to get new faces in the door ahead of pre-season.
