Another day, another story linking Netherlands midfielder, Frenkie de Jong, with a move to Manchester United.
According to a report published by Sport today (news image provided below), Man Utd are restlessly moving to sign the star from Barcelona for incoming boss, Erik ten Hag.
Transfer: Man Utd lead to seal signing of £84million star – Report
The Dutch manager believes that the 24-year-old has not been performing at the optimum level for Barca and under his management, the midfielder can find his best form at Old Trafford.
The Catalan outlet mention that the La Liga club do not want sell him but can change their stance if they receive a mammoth offer.
De Jong’s current deal with Barcelona will expire in 2026 and the Spanish news source have stated that an offer close to £68million (80 million euros) could be enough to hire his services.
As far as the competition is concerned, Sport claim that German champions, Bayern Munich, have also registered their interest in luring the former Ajax star.
De Jong can effectively play as a creative central midfielder and also as a deep lying playmaker and Man Utd surely need a versatile star like the Dutchman.
Record signing, Paul Pogba, is one of the most creative central midfielders in the world but the Frenchman has mostly been on the treatment table in the last two seasons and he is expected to leave Old Trafford for free in the summer.
In your opinion, should Man Utd move in with a bid to sign Frenkie De Jong?
