Barcelona have blamed La Liga for the fact that Frenkie De Jong’s transfer to Manchester United is taking forever, according to ESPN FC.
The Spanish league striker financial rules mean that Barca can’t soften their negotiation stance with the Red Devils when it comes to De Jong’s transfer fee.
Man United’s new manager Erik ten Hag is incredibly keen to land the former Ajax midfielder this summer while the La Liga giants are open to the deal.
Barcelona are looking to recoup the £73 million they paid to Ajax for the player in 2019. Man United are not buying the excuses, offering £50 million-£60 million.
The Red Devils have seen their first bid Frenkie de Jong turned down by Barcelona with the English club expected to return with an improved offer in the coming days.
