Frenkie de Jong joined Ajax in 2015 and was promoted to the first team just a year later. This 26-year-old player developed quickly here and made a special impression when helping Ajax reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League in the 2018/19 season.
After that, he moved to Barcelona. The Catalan giants paid 85 million euros to Ajax to get this midfielder. Since then, De Jong has become an important factor in the Barca squad and has worn the red and blue striped shirt about 188 times.
Under Xavi, it can be said that De Jong is in his most impressive form. Last season, he contributed greatly to helping Barca win the La Liga championship, but in the context of Barca falling into a financial crisis, they may seek to sell De Jong again in the summer market.
According to sources from Fichajes, Man Utd coach Erik ten Hag continues to care about his former student. He is urging the club to find a way to approach De Jong to arrange a deal.
Despite being rejected by De Jong in 2022, Ten Hag still wants to bring the Dutch player to Old Trafford. Man Utd captain highly appreciates the 26-year-old star and believes he can bring a solution to the midfield.
