According to Spanish source, Fichajes, the Old Trafford outfit are on the attack to hire the services of the 25-year-old midfielder from the Blaugrana.

It is stated that Man Utd are willing to table an offer again to finally sign De Jong, whose situation at the Nou Camp is still uncertain.

The Blaugrana wanted to lure Bernardo Silva from Man City in order to replace the former Ajax man and Xavi is still looking to sign the Portuguese from the Sky Blues.

Last month, Sport revealed that United submitted an important offer for De Jong but he was not interested in leaving and did not even take a pay cut. His huge salary of £320,000 a week (Mirror Sport) is still a concern for the La Liga side.

The 20-time English champions did manage to sign Casemiro but the Brazilian is a natural play breaker and not someone who usually connects the midfield to the attack.

In the current campaign, De Jong has warmed the bench more often than not. So far, he has only started 3 games in the league, and 1 in the Champions League because Xavi has preferred Gavi, Pedri and Busquests in the center of the park.

The Netherlands international excelled in the Eredivisie under the guidance of Erik ten Hag. In your view, should he reunite with the manager at Old Trafford to find his best form?
