Erik Ten Hag Sent A Clear Message To Man United Chief About Frenkie De Jong

Erik 10 Hag has told Manchester United’s director of football, John Murtough, to carry on with the club’s search for FC Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong this summer in case the transfer saga drags on into August, based on reports in the British press..

The Guardian is saying that 10 Hag doesn’t wish the Red Devils to quit in their attempt to land the 25-year-old Netherlands international this summer, despite a deal having proved tough to hit up to now.

Manchester United have been persistently linked with a move to land De Jong this summer, but there has been no progress up to now and there are no official updates..

The deal, as reported by Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, was stalled last week mainly because the player does not want to leave FC Barcelona this summer.

In spite of the recommendations, The Guardian claim that 10 Hag is determined for Manchester United to keep on their chase of the Netherlands international this summer and has informed the club’s hierarchy to continue their bid to land the player even if De Jong hasn’t arrived at the club by time the Premier League season kicks off next month.

The summer transfer window is slated to close on 1 September, which means that the Red Devils will nevertheless be free to make additional acquisitions even after the new Premier League season has started.

De Jong travelled with FC Barcelona on their pre season tour of the United States, in spite of reports that the Spanish club wants the midfielder to leave for Manchester United this summer.

Nevertheless, Manchester United – who finished sixth and without a trophy last season – will face Crystal Palace in their following pre season friendly clash on Tuesday.
