Manchester United are close to agreeing a deal for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, according to Sky Sport.

It is believed the clubs have a “broad agreement” on the fee, believed to be €65m (£56m) plus performance-related add-ons.

Discussions will continue over the finer details of the transfer.

However, there is an increased confidence a deal can be struck, while personal terms are not expected to be a problem.

De Jong has four years left on his current Barca contract and made 46 appearances last season.

He played under new United boss Erik ten Hag at Ajax and was part of the squad that completed the Eredivisie and KNVB Cup double during the 2018/2019 campaign, as well as reaching the Champions League semi-finals.
