Manchester United Remain Keen On A Potential Transfer Deal For Frenkie De Jong
Manchester United are allegedly still interested in signing Frenkie de Jong, with new manager Erik ten Hag aiming to make him a vital member of his squad as he prepares to take over at Old Trafford.
According to Sport, Barcelona is eager to negotiate a move for De Jong this summer, even if the player himself is unsure about leaving the Nou Camp. This might be a boost for Man Utd and Ten Hag.
De Jong has performed admirably for Barca, having previously flourished under Ten Hag at Ajax a few years back.
It’s not clear how likely it is that the pair will be reunited in Manchester this summer, but it seems there is some willingness from key parties to negotiate a deal.
The main stumbling block is the player himself, but perhaps the Netherlands international could end up changing his mind about joining United if it becomes clear that he’s not seen as particularly important by his current employers.
MUFC urgently need to bring in a big name like De Jong in midfield this summer after Paul Pogba’s departure at the end of his contract, and with players like Scott McTominay and Fred looking far from convincing in recent times.
