Manchester United pursuing Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong

Baku, April 23, AZERTAC

Manchester United could reunite Erik ten Hag with Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong during the summer transfer window, reports Diario Sport, according to ESPN.

The two were together at Ajax, and with Ten Hag looking to overhaul the Red Devils squad when he moves to Old Trafford at the end of the season, de Jong has emerged as one of United's priorities.

Barcelona don't want to see the Netherlands international leave, though, feeling that he can be a key player for the club as they aim to move forward under the stewardship of Xavi Hernandez.

The Spanish outlet adds that de Jong doesn't want to leave the Camp Nou, but the emergence of ten Hag and United's financial power could change that.

Even if the economic aspect means Barca could let the midfielder go due to their own issues, they will still aim to keep de Jong, as he is comfortable in Barcelona and believes the club's project on the pitch can grow.
