Manchester United transfer chiefs have travelled to the Catalan capital to attempt to review the deal for the Dutch midfielder, Frenkie De Jong, after the Blaugrana scheduled a meeting to speed up a sale of the player.

De Jong has been the subject of a fresh approach from United, after Erik ten Hag urged the club to be patient on a deal that has been in negotiations for over 16 weeks.

NEWSTODAYNG reports that United’s signing of Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro, which was confirmed on Friday evening, has not ended the club’s pursuit of the Barca star.

Casemiro arrived at Old Trafford for the first time on Monday and watched United’s spirited defeat of Liverpool as the performance on the pitch and arrival of the Brazilian suggested that there were better days ahead for the Club

The Brazil international had said an emotional farewell to Real Madrid earlier on Monday before travelling to Manchester and watched the encounter at Old Trafford, where he was unveiled on the pitch ahead of the game.

Video footage circulated of Casemiro’s arrival at the stadium ahead of the match, where a group of Red Devils’ fans struggled to contain their excitement as they attempted to take pictures with him.

De Jong engaged with the video on his Instagram account by ‘liking’ the post in the midst of United’s pursuit of his signature.
