Manchester City line up move for Frenkie de Jong

Manchester City line up move for Frenkie de Jong

Manchester City can’t afford to slip-up in the current campaign with the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool breathing down their neck, so consistency will be key. 

The Citizens have arguably one of the strongest squads in the top-flight of English football, but it doesn’t appear as if they’re done strengthening just yet. Indeed, according to the Daily Mail, Manchester City are lining up a move for Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong in an attempt to strengthen the midfield.

Manchester City want to sign Ajax and Holland star Frenkie de Jong next summer.

Indeed, the defending Premier League champions have watched De Jong extensively but will face competition for one of the finest young talents in European football, as Barcelona have also made checks on the 21-year-old.

Ajax are expected to demand as much as £70 million for De Jong, but City aren’t looking to sign the midfielder until next summer, unless a number of injuries occur.

THE VERDICT:

Frenkie de Jong has established himself as one of the hottest topics in world football over the past season or so, with Manchester City keeping a close eye on him ahead of a potential swoop next summer.

Indeed, the Citizens desperately need to strengthen in the middle of midfield, with Fernandinho getting on with age and after missing out on Jorginho back in the summer transfer window.
