Do everything to sign him – Ex-United coach tells Ten Hag best midfielder to buy

Posted by

Former Manchester United coach, Rene Meulensteen has told the club’s current boss Erik ten Hag to do everything possible to sign Frankie de Jong from Barcelona this summer.

He said that the club need to strengthen significantly this summer to be able to challenge the likes of Manchester City and Arsenal next season and would ‘100 per cent’ reignite a move for Frenkie de Jong.

Manchester United need just two more wins from their final three Premier League matches of the season to qualify for the Champions League next season. Though Liverpool are breathing down their necks.

The Red Devils need to close the gap between them and Man City and Meulensteen feels a new top-class midfielder would be the perfect addition.

Speaking to Manchester United’s official Scandinavian supporters club, the Dutch coach said: “They need a really good midfield player.

“I would 100% do everything to get De Jong. He’s got energy, he’s got legs, he’s tactically very, very good in the build-up.

“For De Jong, I think to be fairly honest, he would have already been here if he had not been happy at Barcelona.”
