Man Utd target De Jong told he must accept €10m-a-year pay-cut for Barcelona stay

Frenkie de Jong must accept a hefty pay-cut to stay with Barcelona.

Barca have accepted a bid from Manchester United for the Holland international.

United will pay a fee rising to €80m for De Jong, though any move will hinge on the player.

De Jong is reluctant to leave Barca, but TMW says the Catalans insist he can only stay if he agrees to a pay-cut.

The midfielder must agree to a €10m-a-year cut on his current salary to remain.

United manager Erik ten Hag, meanwhile, is talking with De Jong and confident of convincing him about a move to Old Trafford.
