According to reports, United have reportedly opened talks with Barcelona over a potential deal for Frenkie de Jong.

Barca boss Xavi has insisted he would like to keep De Jong at the club.

Barcelona value the midfielder at €85 million (£72.4m) – a figure that he wants to rest from.

Barcelona are known to be in need of making sales to balance the books this summer, though it remains to be seen whether United would be willing to splash so much on one player given their own financial restrictions.
