Frenkie de Jong’s (25) move from FC Barcelona to Manchester United is about to fail. This also has a significant impact on other transfer requests.

Effects on numerous transfer plans: Barcelona had hoped to be able to achieve important income with a sale of De Jongs (market value: 60 million euros) in order to be able to meet the strict financial requirements of the Spanish league. In addition, other newcomers should be financed in this way, above all Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern.
Unsuccessful visit to United: For those responsible at Old Trafford, De Jong’s cancellation is all the more regrettable, as they only made their way to Barcelona on Monday to meet the Dutchman. Before that, manager Richard Arnold had said he was confident of victory and said that money was not something that had to be taken into account in negotiations.
