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.
How many signings do Man Utd need to make this summer?
The Latest: United bid
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
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.
