The Red Devils have reportedly reached an agreement with Barcelona over the player. The Old Trafford club agreed an £86m deal with the Blaugrana on De Jong.

Meanwhile, Barcelona president, Joan Laporta has publicly reiterated the decision of Barca to keep the player. He admitted having received offers for De Jong but emphasized that the player is not for sale.
