Barcelona prepared to sell Man Utd target Frenkie de Jong

Barcelona are prepared to sell Frenkie de Jong.

Sport says while publicly Barca coach Xavi has declared he wants De Jong to stay, privately he's prepared to see the midfielder sacrificed.

Barca need to sell in order to register Bosman signings Franck Kessie (AC Milan) and Andreas Christensen (Chelsea).

And De Jong, with Manchester United in contact, is a prime player to be cashed in.

It's been suggested United will seek to do business for around £50m.
