MANCHESTER UNITED are “95 per cent” likely to sign Frenkie de Jong this summer, according to reports.

The Barcelona ace has been a regular in Spain this season, but could be set for a change of scenery.

De Jong joined Barca from Ajax in 2019, before penning a further six-year deal in October 2020.

The Catalan giants have been a tad underwhelmed by the Dutchman, however, and would be willing to cash in.

According to reporter Gerard Romero, Barcelona need to sell players for “purely economic reasons” as they look to balance the books.

With De Jong having failed to make himself a key player, he could be expendable.

A move to Man United may be an attractive one, as he could link up with his former Ajax boss Erik ten Hag.

De Jong will cost the Red Devils between £60million and £70m.

Barca could yet change their minds, although they hold concerns about keeping their midfielder another year.

Club chiefs reckon that should De Jong stay and have a poor season, his value could plummet further

De Jong, 25, has been a regular under both Ronald Koeman and Xavi this season
