Manchester United is considering submitting a new and improved bid for Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong, according to the ever-reliable transfer insider Fabrizio Romano.
“Manchester United are considering internally about submitting a new proposal for Frenkie de Jong in the coming days,” Romano revealed. While conversations with Barcelona continue, it’s a real possibility.
“Deal will enter major phases after verbal €60 million [and add-ons], initial bid turned rejected.”

Erik ten Hag is new to Old Trafford and will need to make an impression during the summer transfer window.
The Dutch manager, who led Ajax to another league triumph in 2021/22, has made acquiring De Jong his top priority for the next months and fulfilling his first major goal would be a huge step forward for him. Being able to lure a player of such incredible quality without the immediate prospect of Champions League action would demonstrate his considerable pulling power. It might also show that United has a highly good football project internally, with De Jong needing to be persuaded to complete the move.
