Reports say that Manchester Unit’ed has made the first offer for Frenkie de Jong, a midf’ielder for Barcelona.

Ten Hag helped De Jong grow a’s a player before he left Ajax for Barcelona in 2019. M’any people think that Ten Hag and De Jong will work toge’ther again in Manchester in the near future.

Marca says that a first offi’cial bid from United for the Dutchman in the area of £68.3 mil’lion has been sent to Barcelona before the summer tran’sfer window opens on Friday. It looks like United has fina’lly decided to make their interest in the player offi’cial before the window opens.

People say that United’s offer inc’ludes a fixed transfer fee of £51.2 million and performan’ce-based add-ons of £17 million. But it remains to be se’en if the offer is enough to get Barcelona to sell De Jon’g before the start of the new season. It is said that Barcel’ona is not in a hurry to sell De Jong.

De Jong is signed to the Catalan gia’nts until the summer of 2026. Xavi, who took over at t’he end of last year, is said to be a big fan of De Jong. Th’e player is also thought to be worried about movi’ng to United because they don’t play in the Champions Lea’gue. This could make it hard for the Red Devils to agr’ee on personal terms without paying too much.

United’s recent offer is being tak’en seriously, according to a report, which says that the tot’al price of £68.3m is close to what Barcelona thinks De Jon’g is worth. Ten Hag is also thought to have talked to th’e midfielder and told him that if he decides to leave in t’he next few weeks, he would play a huge role at Old Traf’ford.

De Jong would definitely be a go’od fit for what Ten Hag is looking for at United. After no’t extending the contracts of Paul Pogba and Nem’anja Matic, United needs more help in the middle of the fie’ld.

But the Barcelona player recently sa’id that he would need to be persuaded to join the Red Dev’ils because he would rather stay at the Nou Camp for th’e foreseeable future.

When asked about United’s int’erest in him earlier this month, he told Algemeen Dagb’lad, “I won’t go into that.” “I used to be innocent and op’en-minded about other names and clubs, but I don’t do that anym’ore.

“I know that connection is made. Th’at number is easy to add up because it makes sense. I’ve enjo’yed working at Ajax with Ten Hag, but I can’t see int’o the future. I’d rather stay in Barcelona, thou’gh.

“My dream club has always been t’hat one, and it still is. As long as I don’t hear from the cl’ub’s management, I assume nothing is going o’n.
