Manchester United’s record signing, Paul Pogba, will be out of contract in three months and he could leave Old Trafford again on a bosman.
The Red Devils must replace the French international with a quality star and the name of Frenkie de Jong, is in the lime light.

According to Spanish source, Nacional, the Dutch international is a priority target and Man Utd offer him a key role to replace Pogba at the club.
Xavi would love to keep the Netherlands star but he will not mind if he is sold because there are a lot of quality options in the center of the park.
It is stated that Barcelona could offload the 24-year-old midfielder if they receive a bid of around 80 million euros (£66million) or more.
De Jong’s current contract with the Catalan giants will expire in the summer of 2026. This season, he has so far netted 3 goals and provided as many assists in 22 La Liga appearances.
The 38-capped international was a key player for Ajax in their double winning 2018-19 campaign but he has not performed consistently well since moving to Spain.
Manchester United lack quality and depth in the central midfield and the departure of Paul Pogba would further add to the problems at Old Trafford.
In your view, should Man Utd offer £66million to sign Frenkie de Jong?
Replacing Pogba you’d get better passing accuracy, better concentration, similar engine, and output with Frenkie. Pogba is more powerful and maybe better at tackling but De Jong can see the field like no other.
