Manchester United have reached a broad agreement for a fee of 65 million euros (£56 million), plus an addition, with Barcelona for Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

However, club sources say the deal is not finalized and there are still significant issues to be worked out.

However, the development was viewed positively from the transfer side which finally reached a conclusion.

The 25-year-old is new United manager Erik ten Hag’s number one summer transfer target.

Ten Hag took charge of training for the first time on Monday with his non-international players.

  • Why Erik ten Hag wants a reunion at Manchester United

United are still making signings this summer as they await a response from Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, 30, who also has an offer from Brentford.

They are also looking for other positions but signing De Jong is seen as a priority.

Ten Hag and his cast will depart for a pre-season tour of Thailand and Australia on July 8.

Ideally, De Jong’s deal would be complete by then, although there is no transfer deadline.
