Frenkie de Jong's agent in London as Chelsea look to launch Man Utd transfer hijack


Share post:

Frenkie de Jong’s agent has reportedly flown into London as Chelsea attempt to hijack Manchester United’s move for the Dutchman. The midfielder has been a target of the Red Devils all summer long, but they are struggling to agree a deal with Barcelona.

The La Liga giants are thought to be ready to sell him, despite club president Joan Laporta’s recent denials, due to their severe financial problems. So far, United have failed to stump up the cash necessary to tempt them into sanctioning his exit.

And that has opened the door to Chelsea, who are finally stepping up their own transfer business. Thomas Tuchel is thought to be keen to add a midfielder to his squad, with De Jong emerging as a potential target.

Amid those reports, De Jong’s representatives are thought to have jumped on a plane to the English capital. According to reports in Spain, his agent has arrived in London to meet with United over their client’s potential transfer.
