Manchester United in Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong talks

Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold and the club’s director of football John Murtough are in Barcelona to hold talks over a deal for Frenkie de Jong, according to Gerard Romero.

The pair met with Barcelona officials Mateu Alemany, Rafa Yuste and Jordi Cruyff on Monday to discuss a deal for De Jong.

Romero reports that Arnold and Murtough are meeting with Barça in Spain for the second time in less than a week. On Thursday, the parties met for more negotiations.

The two clubs have been in talks for weeks but have yet to reach an agreement for the Dutch midfielder, who has admitted that he wants to stay at Camp Nou.

De Jong’s deal with Barcelona runs until 2026. Barça will train this evening and De Jong is expected to take part in the session.
