De Jong wanted by Manchester United

Manchester United have the strongest interest in landing the signature of Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona, ESPN reports.

The Dutchman has been with the Catalan giants for the past three seasons, but could be sold this summer amid their financial issues.

They currently value him at £75m, but United are hopeful that the price tag will be lowered amid the Blaugrana’s need to cash in.

Still, Erik ten Hag’s side face a major stumbling block with De Jong not keen on joining a club without Champions League football.

The Netherlands international would need to be convinced over a summer transfer, but that remains a hefty task for the Red Devils.

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are currently keeping tabs on him, and one of them could pounce on the opportunity.

United are likely to await a decision from the player, but can’t hold up for long as they need to complete quick deals this summer.

Ten Hag will want most of the new signings integrated for pre-season.
