Man Utd handed Frenkie De Jong transfer boost as Carlos Soler 'agrees to join Barcelona as midfield replacement'

May 28, 2022

MANCHESTER UNITED could have the opportunity to sign Frenkie de Jong with Barcelona targeting Carlos Soler, according to reports.

Erik ten Hag is plotting a squad rebuild this summer and De Jong is said to be one of his transfer targets.

Barcelona could sell the Dutchman due to a need to raise money, with Soler a potential replacement according to Sport.

Barca reportedly believe Soler could be a top player in the future and he could be available for a cut-price as he is entering the final year of his contract.

Valencia are also in financial difficulty so could be open to selling, with the 25-year-old said to be keen on the switch.

Xavi has given the go-ahead to complete the move if Barca decide to cash in on De Jong.

The Spanish giants could demand £65million for De Jong with Paris Saint-Germain also in the hunt to sign the midfielder.

But United are not prepared to be messed around in talks for the Dutchman and have issued Barcelona and the player an ultimatum stating they are willing to move on to other targets.

The Red Devils have also been heavily linked to Leeds star Kalvin Phillips and West Ham's Declan Rice.

But a move for Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni could be more realistic despite interest from Real Madrid and Liverpool.
