FRENKIE DE JONG is set to hold crunch talks with Barcelona TODAY about his future, according to reports.

The midfielder has been the subject of constant transfer speculation throughout the summer window.

Erik ten Hag is keen on a reunion with the former Ajax star at Manchester United, and the clubs have agreed a £72million fee for the Dutchman.

But an issue over unpaid wages at Barca means the deal cannot go through.

Now De Jong is set for fresh talks with Barcelona chiefs in a bid to finally resolve his future, according to Spanish outlet Sport.

The midfielder is currently on pre-season tour in the USA, where a meeting has been set for the coming hours to "untangle the situation" between De Jong and the club.
