United are willing to make De Jong their highest paid player by matching his current £450,000-a-week salary.

They are also willing to pay off the £17million that Barcelona owe De Jong in deferred wages, according to Sport.

It is understood Manchester United’s transfer chiefs will fix a meeting with De Jong’s agent, wh Barcelona return from their pre-season tour of America.

A reported deal worth £74million has already been agreed with Barcelona but De Jong is currently unwilling to swap La Liga for Premier League football.
