"He's So Good, He Sets The Tempo" Scholes Gives His Blessings To United's Move For Midfieder

Solskjaer's only blunder was failing to sign a central midfielder. When it comes to United's midfield, Fred was the last central midfielder they signed, and it was during Mourinho's tenure, which says a lot. This realisation only proves that signing a central midfielder in this transfer window is a who, not an if. 


Frankie de Jong of Barcelona appears to be Ten Hag's top midfield target so far. Much has been said, but Paul Scholes' approval of a move for him suggests the 25-year-old could be the player to propel Manchester United forward.

"I heard Karen [Carney] mention there about a central midfielder – they’ve been talking about Frenkie de Jong, who I think is a really good player," said Scholes.


"I haven’t seen much of him at Barcelona. I must admit, I’ve seen him with Holland and he’s that type of player that can come in and control the tempo of games. This manager needs backing now. He’s been brought into the club to really turn it around." 

With Pogba, Matic, Mata, and Lingard all departing, Frankie de Jong's signing could be a bright start for Ten Hag's era. (Metro)
