Manchester United are reportedly expected to make a new bid for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong soon.
That’s according to Fabrizio Romano via his official Twitter account, with the Italian reporter providing another update on Man Utd’s long-running pursuit of De Jong.
The Netherlands international shone under new United manager Erik ten Hag when they were together at Ajax, so it makes sense that he could be seen as ideal for the Red Devils now.
The 25-year-old is a fine player, but one imagines there must also be decent alternatives out there.
Still, MUFC seem to be putting all their eggs into this one basket, so it’s not clear what will happen if this deal falls through.
