Manchester United are reportedly remain determined to bring Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong to Old Trafford during this summer transfer window.

New Man United boss Erik ten Hag has supposedly recognized De Jong as his driving target, having worked with the Netherlands star at Ajax.

There have been ideas that the English club’s inability to equalify for next season’s Champions League will make it inordinately difficult for them to persuade him to join the club.

However, according to journalist Florian Plettenberg, the Red Devils are refusing to give up in their pursuit of the Dutchman, who is allegedly available for the right price this summer.

Plettenberg claims that the 20-time English champions are ‘still pushing’ for the midfielder, but ‘it will not be easy’ to bring him to Old Trafford in the upcoming market.

De Jong was again a vital player for Barcelona during the 2021-22 campaign, making 46 appearances in all competitions, contributing four goals and five assists in the process.

Meanwhile, he has now represented the Catalan outfit on 139 occasions since arriving from Ajax in 2019, providing 13 goals and 17 assists.

De Jong still has more than four years left to run on his contract at Camp Nou, but there have been claims that he will be available this summer, as Barcelona look to raise funds to bring in Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

'That is what they didn't do' - Erik explains what his boys failed to do at Brentford loss

Talking his disappointment at Manchester United’s 4-0 misfortune to Brentford this Saturday, Erik ten Hag said in his post-match interview: “Difficult for me and a surprise. The team has to take the responsibility and I feel sorry for the fans, we let them down.

“I asked them [the players] to play with belief and take responsibility, that is what they didn’t do.

“Only when we stick together we will overcome it — don’t get me wrong, the manager is the main responsibility and I take that but I have to give them belief and they have to get it by themselves.

“Mistakes are part of football, you have to keep going but you have [to] especially act — It [three subs at half-time] was about bringing fresh ones. I could have changed all eight others as well.”

Ten Hag has plainly not kept down in his evaluation and United just have themselves to fault for this wreck.

The Red Devils are currently winless in their first two Premier League games, having conceded six goals as of now.
