Man Utd make ‘offer’ for La Liga star so Barcelona ‘do not sell’ to Man City with Guardiola ready to ‘fight’


Man Utd are looking to get a head start over rivals Man City in the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are set for a summer of change following the announcement earlier this year that Sir Jim Ratcliffe had completed a deal to buy 27.7 per cent of the club from the Glazers.

Man Utd make an offer for De Jong?

Ratcliffe and INEOS have taken charge of the football operation as part of the agreement and are looking to overhaul the recruitment department and invest into the club’s infrastructure.

As well as off the field, there could be major changes in terms of playing personnel too with rumours as many as ten players could leave at the end of the season.


And Spanish publication Nacional insist that one of INEOS’ biggest transfer targets is Barcelona midfielder De Jong, who they have tried to sign on a number of occasions in recent years.
