The situation 

Richard Arnold and John Murtough, CEO and director of football for Manchester United, respectively, had lunch this Monday at noon in Barcelona with Mateu Alemany, Jordi Cruyff and Rafa Yuste, the latter vice president of sports at Barça, to advance in the goodbye of Frenkie de Jong , Barça’s decision to sell the Dutchman and the agreement with Carlos Soler who, by the way, is still waiting for news despite the fact that since the azulgrana club leaks that it is not in their plans. Jijantes also clarified that Richard Arnold and John Murtough were already in Barcelona last Thursday. The operation has been chewing, well, for many weeks, even though Chelsea has appeared as an outsider in recent days. The meeting confirms that the sale of Frenkie de Jong is more alive than ever and the information jumps a couple of hours before the Dutch midfielder meets with his teammates and the entire coaching staff for the first time since the holidays. So, De Jong already knew that the club’s plan was to sell him and that Xavi had given the green light to said sale. De Jong will be one of the economic levers that the club, in addition to the sale of up to 25% of its television rights, will activate in order to deal with the signings sought by Xavi: Koundé, Lewandowski and Raphinha.

The details

It remains to be known what final figure the transfer will be closed. The most repeated figure in recent days has been 80 million euros, but it remains to be seen how much United will pay in gross and what the variables will be. The footballer, meanwhile, is aware that his sale is almost irremediable because the president of Barça, Joan Laporta, has set a condition for him to continue to lower his salary, a humiliation that the Dutchman does not intend to go through. Therefore, United will have to agree to each and every one of Frenkie de Jong’s requests at the salary level for the operation to end up closing or it will run aground. De Jong is deeply hurt by the treatment that both directors and technicians of Barça have been giving him in recent months,
