According to the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils are willing to rekindle their interest in the Barcelona midfielder, and Erik ten Hag is looking forward to a reunion at the end of the season.
Manchester United came close to signing the midfielder when they agreed on an €85 million deal with the Spanish club at the start of the season.
However, the agreement did not go through, and it would be interesting to watch if Manchester United can finally close the deal.
If the Red Devils want to compete for big prizes, they will need to replace players like Scott McTominay and Fred, and De Jong may be an excellent signing.
Christian Eriksen and Casemiro have changed Manchester United’s midfield this season, and De Jong’s signing could finally allow them to compete with clubs like Manchester City and Arsenal next season.
The Red Devils have the financial muscle to pull off a large money deal, but whether they can persuade the Dutchman to join the club remains to be seen.
Manchester United are well placed to qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season, and how the scenario develops remains to be seen.
De Jong previously worked with Ten Hag at Ajax, and the Dutch manager was instrumental in his growth. The 25-year-old may be drawn to the prospect of playing under him again.
