According to the latest rumors, the Red Devils have not given up on enticing the Dutchman and want to make a new push.
According to a Spanish source, Fichajes, the Old Trafford club is looking to sign the 25-year-old midfielder from the Blaugrana.
Man United is said to be willing to make another approach to capture De Jong, whose status at the Nou Camp remains uncertain.
The Blaugrana sought to sign Bernardo Silva from Manchester City to replace the former Ajax player, and Xavi is still interested in signing the Portuguese from the Sky Blues.
Last month, Sport claimed that United made a significant offer for De Jong, but he refused to leave and refused to take a price reduction. His weekly pay of £320,000 (Mirror Sport) is a source of concern for the La Liga club.
The 20-time English champions did sign Casemiro, but the Brazilian is more of a playmaker than someone who connects the midfield to the attack.
De Jong has spent the majority of the current season warming the bench. So far, he has only started three league games and one Champions League game since Xavi prefers Gavi, Pedri, and Busquests in the center of the park.
Under Erik ten Hag’s tutelage, the Netherlands international thrived in the Eredivisie. Should he rejoin the management at Old Trafford to rediscover his greatest form, in your opinion?
