Manchester United report: Barcelona and United poles apart in valuation of midfielder

Manchester United are at a deadlock in their negotiations for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, with the two clubs around £17 million apart in their valuation of the player. 

The Netherlands international is United’s number one target, as Erik ten Hag looks to begin his squad rebuild by bringing in one of his former Ajax players.

However, the Telegraph (opens in new tab)reports that there is a significant gap between the sums being offered and demanded for the playmaker.

Barca want to bring in at least €86m (£73.8m) for De Jong, the same amount they paid for him from Ajax in 2019.
