Manchester United have finally reached an agreement with Barcelona to sign Frenkie de Jong, but the deal could still collapse as the Netherlands midfielder considers rejecting the move.

Erik ten Hag, appointed as manager of United in April, worked with De Jong at Ajax and has made the 25-year-old one of his top targets this summer.

United have been in talks with Barca for several weeks and were struggling to agree a fee with the Spanish giants, who are open to selling De Jong but only for a price they deem suitable.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have now made a breakthrough in negotiations, with a €85m (£72m) move agreed.

It is claimed that around £63m will be paid up front, with a further £10m heading to Barcelona in various add-ons.
