Manchester United are interested in signing Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona in the summer transfer window, according to talkSPORT. The report has claimed that United manager Erik ten Hag was keen on bringing his Dutch compatriot to Old Trafford in the summer of 2022, and that he still wants the midfielder in his team for next season and beyond.
