Manchester United have time and time again been linked with Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong. In all honesty, United manager Erik ten Hag has been borderline desperate to sign the Dutch midfield wizard.

Frenkie has repeatedly emphasized that he has absolutely no desire to leave Xavi’s project, but there are rumours of that changing and that he is not considered as essential as before especially considering Xavi will be leaving at the end of the season.

This is according to El Nacional who report that Frenkie may be one of the players who will leave in a summer that is expected to have numerous departures to raise revenue for a financially-struggling Barça.

De Jong is one of Barça’s top earners, and Deco and his team have been strategizing on reducing the financial strain in the club using means like letting go of the high-earners.

On that note, they report that Barça president Joan Laporta has a €90 million offer for de Jong on his table from The Red Devils.

Frenkie has been having a rather quiet season this, struggling with injury after injury, but his overall quality can improve any midfield in the world.

This possible purchase of de Jong will fit with Man United’s philosophy and further bolster the squad.

A number of midfielders are expected to leave Old Trafford in the summer, and the Dutch midfielder would be ideal for the Red Devils.

Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and Sofyan Amrabat all have uncertain futures at the club

His excellent working relationship with manager Erik ten Hag just may be a bright spot in an otherwise long shot in the dark as far as United are concerned.

The Dutch maestro was an integral part of ten Hag’s all conquering Ajax team that shocked the whole world a few years ago with that impressive Champions League run that saw them eliminate the likes of Juventus and 14-time winners Real Madrid.

If Man United can pull this off, they will have that midfield sorted and perfectly balanced, with captain Bruno and rising star Kobbie Mainoo partnering him.
