crazy ball – Manchester United are preparing a desperate bid for Frenkie de Jong with a final proposal that would make the Barcelona midfielder the highest paid player in Premier League football.
Manager Erik ten Hag is said to be deeply frustrated by the Dutch international’s protracted transfer saga and is now asking the club’s board to do everything possible to convince the midfielder to stay at Old Trafford.
According to news revealed by Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United have actually agreed a transfer fee with Barcelona for Frenkie de Jong worth IDR 1.3 trillion including bonuses, it’s just that personal agreements are still a problem.
The former Ajax Amsterdam star is said to be reluctant to move to The Red Devils who will not play in the Europa League until next season, while he also has a salary receivable that has not been paid by his club worth IDR 307 billion.
According to some reports, Barcelona asked Manchester United to pay their back wages to the 25-year-old player, which was obviously rejected by the Premier League as it was not their responsibility.
But now it appears the 20-time Premier League champions have changed their mind as they look to end the Netherlands international midfielder’s transfer saga quickly, especially with Chelsea now also in the hunt.
According to news report from Sport, In their final proposal, Manchester United are ready to match Frenkie de Jong’s salary of IDR 8.1 billion per week at Barcelona plus pay his salary debtors worth IDR 307 billion that have not been paid by the Catalan club.
The report further mentions that the head of the transfer red devil will try to meet representatives of the Dutch midfielder when Xavi Hernandez’s side return from their pre-season tour of America.
With a salary of IDR 8.1 billion per week, Frenkie de Jong could become the highest paid player at the club. Cristiano Ronaldo’s current salary is believed to be IDR 9 billion per week, but a more valid report shows the figure of IDR 7 billion per week. Even if it is true that he earns IDR 9 billion per week, his salary will be cut by 25 percent or he could leave Old Trafford this summer. The rest is Kevin de Bruyne as the highest paid player in the league with a fee of IDR 7.2 billion per week.
