The reporters confirmed on Thursday that a £71 million package has been agreed by United for De Jong.

Frenkie is now set to form part of Barca’s travelling party that is heading to America

There has been another twist in the long-running Frenkie de Jong transfer saga, with Barcelona including the Manchester United target in their squad for their pre-season tour of the United States. The Netherlands international remains a top priority for the Red Devils in their summer recruitment drive, but a deal appears to be no nearer to completion. The reporters confirmed on Thursday that a £71 million package has been agreed by United for De Jong. Still, personal terms are not in place, and the 25-year-old is now set to form part of Barca’s travelling party that is heading to America. The Liga giants have revealed that De Jong will form part of their plans as they ready themselves for a host of pre-season friendlies.

Barca continue to maintain that they are under no pressure to part with De Jong

Barca are set to face David Beckham’s Inter Miami, Clasico rivals Real Madrid, Serie A heavyweights Juventus and MLS side the New York Red Bulls, while in the U.S. For now, De Jong is in contention to figure prominently across those fixtures as he joins summer signings Raphinha, Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie in Xavi’s squad. Barca continue to maintain that they are under no pressure to part with De Jong, having become frustrated at the protracted saga involving United. It is possible that his services could be retained despite financial struggles making sales imperative. Club president Joan Laporta told reporters at the unveiling of new arrival Raphinha: “It is not true that the club is obliged to sell Frenkie.”

 

While the Blaugrana are prepared to find a role for De Jong in their plans for 2022-23, several senior stars have reportedly been informed that they are free to move on.

The make-up of a squad heading to the States would appear to confirm as much, with there several notable absentees from that list. Martin Braithwaite, Samuel Umtiti, Oscar Mingueza, Neto and Riqui Puig are all being left behind as Barca seek to find buyers for disposable assets – with any funds generated there set to aid efforts to bring in the likes of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
