Manchester United

English club Manchester United have already appointed Erik Ten Hag as the permanent manager. He will take charge of this club by the end of this season. But, Erik ten Hag has targeted some players to sign this window. Barcelona’s midfielder Frenkie de Jong is one of them.

Manchester United have been looking for a midfielder to replace Paul Pogba, who is uncertain about staying at the club. So, the new manager wants De Jong to replace the French World Cup winner. Frenkie de Jong joined FC Barcelona from Ajax in 2019. He signed for the Spanish club until 2026. But because of the poor financial condition, Barcelona want to make some money by selling De Jong.
