Yesterday, the Catalan media outlet covered a story suggesting that Man Utd are currently clear to sign De Jong as they are the only club still interested in getting him.

French champions, Paris Saint-Germain, now plan to focus most of the financial resources on replacing Kylian Mbappe, strengthening the wings and reinforcing the defense.

Therefore, Sport claim that the Ligue 1 giants ‘will not knock on’ the doors of Barca to present a proposal for De Jong.

Bayern Munich were in the lime light as well but as per the report, with the appointment of Manchester City legend, Vincent Kompany, the Bundesliga side’s interest in the former Ajax midfielder ‘has been frozen’.

De Jong became a superstar in world football under the management of current Man Utd boss, Erik ten Hag, who recently opened up about his wish to reunite with the Barca star (Sky Sports).

Sport state the 27-year-old midfielder is ‘liked’ at Old Trafford but first United have to decide whether they want to sack the Dutch manager or not.

Once the ‘internal chaos’ is settled and the squad has been lightened, the PL giants may move in to finally lure the Barca star.

In your view, should Man Utd secure the signing of £85million-rated Frenkie de Jong?
