De Jong and De Ligt - Netherlands

Manchester United have not won a single game in the Premier League since winning the Carabao Cup back in February.

Yesterday, the Red Devils were outclassed by Newcastle United and the biggest concern was in the central midfield.

Manchester United were without first choice starters, Eriksen (injured) and Casemiro (suspended) and in their absence, we were terrible in the center of the park.

Scott McTominay, who impressed for his nation during the break, was average against the Magpies and it is not surprising that he is linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

As per a recent story covered by The Mail (press image provided below), the Scottish international could end up leaving in the summer transfer window.

To reinforce the midfield Man Utd are keen on Frenkie de Jong, Jude Bellingham and Declan Rice. Our focus is on the Dutch international.

The Barcelona star, who earns around £320,000 a week (The Mirror) was our prime target last year but he ended up staying with the Catalan giants.

Now, Ten Hag is eager to finally sign him and rightly so. McTominay and Fred are not good enough, Sabitzer’s loan spell will expire in a few months.

On the other hand, Casemiro and Eriksen are veterans and have not been consistently available in the current campaign.

Frenkie De Jong excelled under Ten Hag at Ajax and has been brilliant this term for Barca, who currently have a twelve-point lead on top of the Spanish La Liga.

In your view, should Man Utd make an offer to finally sign him?
