United have presently agreed to shell out an original £63m to signal De Jong, but the sticking issue avoiding this offer from occurring is that the midfielder reportedly does not want to leave Barcelona. Not to be a part of Gentleman Utd anyway.
With the 2022/23 period edging nearer, United look at this the opportune time to appear at other targets.

“He’s a genuinely top player. He has been linked with Arsenal and Newcastle as properly. If Male United appear into town and put the funds down, I believe Lazio’s ears will really prick up,” Campbell instructed Soccer Insider.
“Is it a risk? I really do not consider so. I have watched him play. He is an remarkable participant.
“Yes, he has in no way played in the Premier League before. He could possibly consider a tiny little bit of time to adapt but I’m confident he could cut it below.
“Frenkie de Jong is a participant Ten Hag now appreciates. He is aware of what he delivers and what he can get out of him so I have an understanding of why he would be the desire.
“But if they cannot get De Jong, Milinkovic-Savic would be a fantastic selection.”
Milinkovic-Savic has been persistently connected with United about modern a long time and Italian outlet Mesagero (by using The Every day Mail) are reporting that they are now ‘preparing an £42m offer’ for him.
This initial provide will ‘test Lazio’s resolve’, nevertheless the Serie A outfit are envisioned to ‘dig their heels’ and ask for a fee nearer to £59m.
Milinkovic-Savic’s agent ‘is expected to current Lazio with an offer you they just can’t refuse from United by the beginning of August’, which appears very ominous.
The report provides that Lazio ‘will focus on Napoli’s Piotr Zieliński as a replacement’ if Milinkovic-Savic is sold this summertime.
