Man United: De Jong's Deal Edges Closer, Rice Backed For Old Trafford Move

Ten Hag's plans for Manchester United have not been made public to Manchester United fans, but rumour has it that the Dutch tactician intends to sign at least one central midfielder to bring order to United's midfield. 

Frankie de Jong, a former Ajax player, is the midfielder who has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford. In response to United's pursuit of de Jong, German Sky Sports journalist Florian Plettenberg tweets:


 

Manchester United, keen to please Ten Hag, will make a significant bid to sign the Dutch midfield engine.



Although Frankie de Jong is expected to join United in the summer, United's interest in Declan Rice has not died. Dean Jones, speaking to GIVEMESPORT, has backed United in their pursuit of Rice. Jones asserts, "Manchester United are definitely one of the clubs that have a good chance of getting Declan Rice.

"Financially, they could do it and they absolutely need him."



All in all, Ten Hag should not fall into the "McFred" trap, regardless of whether United signs de Jong or Rice. Last summer, Solskjaer ignored United's obvious need for midfield reinforcements, which cost him his job. Having a reliable midfield is critical for Ten Hag.
