Manchester United is strategically working towards securing the services of Barcelona’s midfield maestro.
Despite last summer’s unsuccessful pursuit, manager Erik ten Hag remains determined to bring the Dutch midfielder to Old Trafford for the upcoming season.
Barcelona, who acquired Frenkie de Jong for a hefty €85 million fee, is now looking to recoup a substantial portion of that investment if they decide to part ways with him this season. This has put Manchester United on high alert, as they prepare to make a substantial offer to acquire the talented midfielder according to reports from Spain (as cited by GOAL).
Erik ten Hag, who recently took the helm at Manchester United, has made it clear that Frenkie de Jong is his top priority for the upcoming transfer window. This determination has left Manchester United fans hopeful for a successful deal.
If the transfer materializes, Frenkie de Jong’s addition to the Manchester United roster could have a significant impact on their ambitions in the Champions League and other competitions. His skillful playmaking and midfield prowess are qualities that the team could greatly benefit from.
Manchester United has already made some notable summer signings, including Sofyan Amrabat and Mason Mount. With Frenkie de Jong potentially completing their midfield unit, the team’s prospects for success in the Premier League and beyond are looking increasingly promising.
De Jong’s track record of success at Ajax and Barcelona has made him a highly sought-after player in the football world. His ability to control the game from midfield and contribute both defensively and offensively makes him a valuable addition to any team.
