GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS
Manchester United are likely to be 95 per cent signing Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong this summer.
According to reporter Gerard Romero, Barca need to sell players for ‘purely economic reasons’ to balance the books.
Meanwhile, United have once again shortlisted Villarreal star Pau Torres as a potential summer destination.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims United have flagged Torres as one of three or four potential new centre-back options.
In other news, Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo has told his team-mates he intends to stay but only if new manager Erik ten Hag wants him, reports SunSport’s Richard Moriarty.
A United insider revealed: “Ronaldo has told players he’s not going anywhere unless the club say they don’t want him.
“No one is more disappointed than him with how the season has gone.
“But he doesn’t want to leave on a low and help get the club back into the Champions League and try to win a trophy next year.
Elsewhere, outgoing Manchester United star Nemanja Matic will pocket a £10million sign-up bonus as he nears his move to Juventus.
Matic will leave Old Trafford as a free agent in the summer after deciding not to stay his senior year.
According to the Daily Star, the midfielder, who joined United from Chelsea, is ready to link up with Juve.
The Serbia international will also take home a £10m registration fee.
On top of that, he earns an incredible salary of £90,000 a week in Turin.
Finally, Erik ten Hag has reportedly outlined a shortlist of priority positions Manchester United should tackle in the transfer market.
Ten Hag has met with United director John Murtough to discuss the areas United will prioritize.
According to The Telegraph, four players will be prioritized this summer, with two midfielders, a versatile attacker and a centre-back making the list.
