Sharing is caring!

Erik ten Hag is ‘pressing’ Man Utd to up their bids for two Ajax stars, Frenkie de Jong says ‘no’ to move and more…


Is anyone else bored of the De Jong-Man Utd saga? Well, we will not be hearing about it for much longer if Spanish outlet Sport are to be believed.
Last week it was reported that United and Barcelona were ‘clear’ that the full fee for De Jong will be €85m (add-ons included).

Though conflicting reports have emerged regarding De Jong’s stance on the move. Sport now state that the player’s ‘absolute priority’ is to stay at Barcelona and he has given a ‘resounding no’ to Man Utd.

They even list ten reasons why he is against reuniting with Ten Hag in England. Among them are the ‘bad weather in Manchester’ and the belief that United are a ‘jinxed team’.

De Jong is also being linked with Chelsea. The report hints that a move to the Blues is more likely as this transfer has ‘fewer points against it’.

RED DEVILS TOLD TO PAY €125M FOR AJAX DUODe Jong has long been United’s priority, though they are also looking to raid Ten Hag’s former club Ajax.

Lisandro Martinez and Antony are the players they are pursuing. According to The Times, Ten Hag wants Man Utd to step up their pursuit of the duo.

They state that the English club have already offered €50m and €60m for Martinez and Antony respectively. Their bid for the latter is said to be €20m short of Ajax’s €80m valuation.

Both players are open to joining Man Utd, but Ajax have made it clear that they want replacements lined up before Martinez and Antony are sold.

The Dutch outfit ‘want to bring in €125m across the two transactions’ so United need to dig deeper into their pockets.
