Talks are believed to be progressing with Barca, who are reportedly keen to part ways with the Netherlands international in order to bolster their transfer budget.
In Cataluyna, it’s reported a deal has been reached with United to meet the La Liga side’s £69million price tag.
The Sun says Barcelona have offered United the opportunity to purchase De Jong for less than that, but only if they would allow defender Maguire to head to the Camp Nou as part of the deal.
But despite his shaky performances as club captain that have led to significant criticism, the Red Devils declined the proposition.
