Barcelona tell transfer targets Frenkie de Jong’s Man Utd deal will raise money for signings amid Raphinha bid

BARCELONA has assured that significant funds will be raised following Frenkie de Jong’s move to Manchester United amid their bid to sign Leeds star Raphinha.

Barça are engaged in an intense bidding war to bring in the winger along with Chelsea and Arsenal, but struggle to secure the £55million asking price from the whites.

However, according to Manchester Evening News, the Blaugrana are confident money will not be an issue after De Jong comes to United for a reported £56million fee.

Reports suggest the Red Devils have reached an agreement with the Catalan giants and hope the midfielder will join the rest of the team in time to fly to Bangkok for the season.

The Netherlands international has accepted that he must leave the Nou Camp this summer and will reunite with former Ajax coach Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta will wait for the deal to be finalized before penalizing moves in the market.

But Laporta seems confident that the club’s financial wishes will be met once De Jong signs with United.

The Spanish side are set to compete for the big honor this season after a turbulent campaign in which they struggled in the beginning before manager Xavi took over and turned things around.

Raphinha is one of Barcelona’s main goals to help them return to the top.

Barca face stiff competition for the Brazil international as Chelsea had accepted an offer from Leeds.


However, the 25-year-old has rebuffed the advances of the Blues and has his sights set on a move to Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana are also looking to sign Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich’s rowdy superstar, who has a contract with the German champions until next year.
