Man United set to make January approach for 6 ft 1 Barcelona star

Frenkie de Jong has become one of the top targets again for Man United. The Red Devils are set to cough up nearly €115m to secure the services of the Barcelona midfielder. The Netherlands international has endured a rollercoaster ride since joining the Blaugrana from Ajax over three years ago. De Jong has arguably been one of the most consistent performers in a difficult period for the Catalan giants. But the Blaugrana still looked to offload him in the summer transfer window to balance the books. The Catalan giants’ efforts did not come to fruition, and Frenkie has gradually become a regular starter for them. The 25-year-old midfielder has played 17 games thus far this campaign, chipping in with two goals and one assist. But one thing that remains a constant is Man United hotly pursuing the Dutch midfielder over a potential move. The Red Devils wasted several months in the summer transfer window pursuing the Dutchman, but a move never materialized. But the interest in the former Ajax midfielder has not ended despite the snub in the summer. And the Dutch manager still wants to build his team around Frenkie in the coming years. The Red Devils strengthened the midfield unit by signing Casemiro and Eriksen in the summer transfer window. But Fred faces an uncertain future at Man United, while McTominay has become a backup option. So de Jong stays a viable target for the Red Devils.
