According to Sport, Frankie de Jong is a priority target for Erik ten Haag. The two men know each other very well as they were commanded by a Batavian technician for two seasons, between 2017 and 2019. Manchester United should make an offer for the Dutch midfielder who wants to stay in Catalonia.

With the departure of Nemanja Matic and the possible departure of Paul Pogba, Manchester United are looking for solutions in the midfield.
