Barcelona are reportedly open to “big-money” offers for Manchester United target Frenkie de Jong.
De Jong, who has 40 caps for the Netherlands, arrived at Barcelona from Ajax for a €75million fee in 2019, accumulating 137 appearances for the club in all competitions.
The midfielder has been a key pillar in Barcelona’s line-up this season, appearing 44 times, but the Catalan giants may be ready to move on as the interest from United intensifies.
