Manchester United making progress in talks to sign Barca midfielder de Jong

Manchester United have made headway in negotiations with FC Barcelona over key summer target Frenkie de Jong.

Erik ten Hag coached the 25-year-old at Ajax and feels the midfielder will be an important part of the rebuild he is undertaking at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are understood to have made positive progress in talks with FC Barcelona and a deal of around 65million euros (68.5 million dollars) plus add-ons has been lined up.

There remains issues to iron out though, but the first signing of the Ten Hag era appears to be edging closer.

The acquisition of a box-to-box midfielder has been a focus for the newly-appointed Dutchman, who oversaw his first training session as Red Devils manager on Monday.

Work is afoot to add more faces and some peripheral players are on their way out, with back-up goalkeeper Dean Henderson set to join Nottingham Forest on loan.
