With This Deal, Ten Hag Will Unleash One Of The Best Midfield Duo In The League: Forget McFred

Manchester United has a lot of hope and expectations under Ten Hag. Red Devils around the world will be hoping for some progressive changes that will propel United to glory. 

The "McFred" partnership is something United wants to be a thing of the past. Solskjaer and Rangnick (on occasion) relied on the two, but McTominay and Fred have always been ineffective in United's midfield.


United are currently making a strong push to sign Frankie De Jong. The signing of Frankie de Jong has been long anticipated, and United fans will be hoping that if it is completed, it will usher in a new era in United's midfield. 

With Ten Hag, Van de Beek, and De Jong, United now have the perfect recipe to re-create the 2018-2019 Ajax midfield, which was probably the best in Europe at the time (it guided Ajax to the Champions League semifinals). 

United's attack and defence may be underperforming, but there's no denying that before tackling these two positions, Ten Hag will need to address his midfield or risk failing to please United fans.
