‘Manchester United have apparently received a boost in their pursuit of Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.
Manchester United fans’ excitement has skyrocketed with the publication of a report saying that Barcelona player Frenkie de Jong is open to a move to Old Trafford.
According to the Manchester Evening News, De Jong is on the Reds’ radar, and they are considering a big-money bid for his signature. Despite United’s eagerness to sign him, various sources have stated that the midfielder is hesitant to make the transfer due to the lack of Champions League play next season.
United finished sixth in the Premier League this season, ensuring that they will compete in the Europa League the following season. It has the potential to disrupt their transfer plans, and it remains to be seen how severe the consequences will be.
According to The Athletic, De Jong has ‘privately stated’ that he is open to joining United, potentially giving the Reds a huge boost in their pursuit of a deal with Barcelona. He signed the Spanish giants from Ajax in 2019 for £65 million, and any deal is almost certainly going to be profitable.
Despite the fact that United have yet to agree on a deal with the La Liga club, the report indicating that De Jong is keen to reuniting with Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford might be a huge breakthrough. And, understandably, the news has gotten a lot of attention on social media.
As evidenced by the messages above, United fans have been ecstatic about the news. The club is determined to bolster its midfield options in the coming weeks, and signing De Jong would be a huge show of purpose.
He is regarded as one of Europe’s top players in his position, with a wealth of experience at the age of 25.
