Revealed: The two players Manchester United are willing to offer for Frenkie de Jong

A fresh update on Manchester United’s pursuit of Barcelona star Frenkie de Jong has emerged.

Barca 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-finals of the Champions League back in 2019.

Since his move to Catalonia, though, de Jong has struggled to consistently 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 the Dutchman for this, with Barcelona as a club having long been in the midst of something of a lull, with La Blaugrana now onto their 3rd permanent manager since de Jong joined the club.

Amid all of this upheaval, it was claimed back in November of 2021 that Barcelona had put Frenkie de Jong up for sale.

Such speculation had since died down. However, reports from Spain last week claimed that Erik ten Hag wants to bring De Jong to Manchester United to be the face of his Red Devils project from next season on.

Manchester United open to swap deal

Now, another update, this time from Spanish outlet Fichajes, has emerged regarding Man United and De Jong.

It is claimed that a swap deal could be on the cards, with United willing to allow Marcus Rashford and Alex Telles to be included in any deal for the midfielder.

Given Telles’ poor showings over the last several months and the fact United can call upon Brandon Williams to be their second choice left-back next season, letting Telles go does make sense.

However, whilst Rashford has not been at the races recently, he provides cover at both left-wing and up top – two areas United are pretty short in right now.
