Manchester United’s top target all through the summer window has been Frenkie de Jong and the club have been dealing with a deal to carry him to Old Trafford.
The Manchester Evening News comprehends that a charge has been concurred with Barcelona for the Dutch midfielder, notwithstanding, a deal is being held by a disagreement regarding conceded compensation.
This postponement has left many United fans disrupted and worried that Erik ten Hag can not get his preferred midfield target. This has been additionally exacerbated by Barcelona naming De Jong as a component of the squad for their pre-season visit through the United States.
However it would be hasty for United to leave a deal for De Jong, given he is Ten Hag’s main decision, they should begin setting up an arrangement for another player as plan B. Clearly this would permit them to make arrangements for the worst situation imaginable, in the event that De Jong waits this summer, yet in addition to come down on Barcelona to determine the question as they hope to proceed with their own summer business.
The issue is that De Jong is a somewhat exceptional profile of player, he does a ton of the positions of a defensive midfielder under lock and key without having a ton of the traits which make them incredible off the ball. What he offers is a predictable method for advancing the ball up the pitch by getting the ball from the guard and moving it up the field.
He is likewise amazingly proficient at beating the resistance press and essentially would go about as the motor for Ten Hag’s ownership based framework at United. This principles out players like Youri Tielemans and Ruben Neves whose qualities and capacity to impact the game untruth a lot further forward.
As a matter of fact, there ostensibly isn’t a player in the Premier League who United would have the option to sign to tackle this issue. Be that as it may, the arrangement could lie in the Serie A rather with Napoli’s Fabian Ruiz.
The Spanish midfielder at present just has a year left on his agreement with the Italian side and consequently could be accessible for around €30m this summer. This would make him not exactly around 50% of the cost of what United have offered for De Jong and give them more space to move in the transfer market.
One of Ruiz’s greatest traits is his capacity to both spill and pass under tension from the rival. Furthermore, given he will frequently be the player that hopes to begin assaults and get a ton of the ball, this would be a significant trait that Ten Hag would esteem.
De Jong ought to be viewed as the need until keeping on chasing after him is totally ridiculous. Be that as it may, considering how frantically United need a player here, Ruiz would be a fitting subsequent choice.
