    Manchester United considering Barcelona star as Paul Pogba replacement


    Reports stemming from Spain have credited Manchester United with an interest in Frenkie de Jong.

    De Jong’s Barcelona stint

    Frenkie de Jong would sign for FC Barcelona back in the summer of 2019.

    The Spanish powerhouse are understood to have paid around £77m to bring the midfielder to the Camp Nou on the back of a starring campaign, in which he helped Ajax reach the semi-final of the Champions League.

    Since his move to Catalonia, though, De Jong has struggled to showcase the abilities that made him such a desirable asset for Barcelona in the first place.

    Not all of the blame can be put on De Jong for this, though, with Barcelona as a club experiencing something of a crisis, with La Blaugrana now on their 3rd permanent manager since De Jong joined the club.

    Manchester United looking at De Jong

    Despite his struggles in Catalonia, though, De Jong is still seemingly attracting the attention of a top European side.

    That team, as per the Daily Mail citing reports in Spain, is Manchester United. The report from the DM claims that the Red Devils are considering De Jong as a replacement for Paul Pogba.

    Pogba’s second stint in Manchester has been fairly poor, with the midfielder struggling for any sort of consistently positive displays.

    And, to make matters worse, Pogba is out of contract in the summer, meaning United are currently set to lose him on a free – unless they sell him in January or get him to sign a new deal.

    In terms of a potential fee for De Jong, the Mail claim Barcelona would want £75m for the Dutchman. Could De Jong be the central midfielder Man United have been clearly needing for some time now?
