As per the latest reports going on in the media, Manchester United are heavily linked with Barcelona midfielder, Frenkie de Jong.
According to Manchester Evening News, Man Utd consider making a huge move worth £75million to sign the Dutch star from the Catalan giants.
De Jong was brilliant under Ten Hag at Ajax and MEN claim that the 52-year-old boss is looking to bring the Oranje star to Old Trafford. It is stated that the Red Devils have already initiated contact to lure the player.
In Spain, Sport have reported that the Nou Camp outfit would only sell the 25-year-old star if they receive a huge offer worth 100 million euros (£85million).
The Catalan source have mentioned that Man Utd are convinced De Jong can be one of the most important players under Ten Hag’s new project.
The former Eredivisie midfielder moved to Spain in 2019 and since then, he has only managed to win the Copa Del Rey with Barca (last season). Like 2019-20, the La Liga giants are going to end this season without any trophy.
De Jong has been unable to replace legends like Xavi and Iniesta in the center of the park. In the current campaign, so far, he has made 30 appearances in the league, scored 3 goals, and provided as many assists.
Do you think he is good enough to improve the midfield at Old Trafford? I think Yes. Pogba and Matic will be out of contract in the summer, on the other hand, Fred and McTominay have been inconsistent.
Yesterday, Ten Hag celebrated his third Eredivisie title with Ajax. Let’s hope he can bring glory days back to Man Utd, who have not won the league in almost a decade (2013).
