Manchester United: Red Devils will make Frenkie de Jong offer -Manchester United News

Manchester United will make a move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong this summer.

The Lowdown: De Jong at Barca

De Jong, who previously worked under new United boss Erik ten Hag at Ajax, has been at the Nou Camp since 2019.

The 24-year-old has gone on to make 135 appearances for the Catalan giants, scoring 13 times and registering 17 assists.

He reportedly has a release clause of €400m (£337m) and is under contract to 2026, but it looks as if a reunion with Ten Hag could be on the cards.

The Latest: United bid

Sports Witness relayed an update from Spanish outlet Sport on Saturday regarding the Red Devils and De Jong.

They claimed that the Barcelona star is one of United’s ‘priority targets’ and there ‘will be an offer’ made for his services. Ten Hag’s arrival at Old Trafford ‘could change everything’ due to the pair’s positive relationship, the report adds.

The Verdict: Needed

Midfield reinforcements are required at Old Trafford this summer, especially with Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic set to leave on free transfers.

De Jong is primarily a central midfielder but can also play as a defensive midfielder, and Ten Hag will know just how to get the best out of him.

Financially, a deal could prove difficult due to his huge release clause, however, landing De Jong, who still has plenty of years at the top ahead of him, could be an extremely shrewd move ahead of Ten Hag’s first season in charge.
