Manchester United report: Contact made for Barcelona star – but Red Devils won’t overpay

Manchester United have opened talks with Barcelona about Frenkie de Jong, say reports, but an official bid is yet to be made. 

New Red Devils boss Erik ten Hag wants to be reunited with his former Ajax charge at Old Trafford next season as part of a midfield revamp. 

The BBC (opens in new tab)reports that United have contacted the Camp Nou club about the Netherlands international’s availability.

The Premier League club don’t want to pay over the odds for the 25-year-old, and they are yet to submit an offer for a player who cost Barca £65 million when he joined them from Ajax in January 2019.
