The first official offer from Red Devils was 60m euro plus 10m add-ons, and was turned down last week.

De Jong himself is reported to prefer staying at Barcelona. The 25-year-old midfielder smiled and refused to comment last time when asked about joining with Ten Hag at Man United.

De Jong has always been important at Barca since his 85-million-euro move 3 years ago from Ajax.

Barca, however, may be reluctant to let their key player go for a reasonable price, as they are badly in debt.

Man United’s replacement in case they can not seal De Jong’s signature

Man United is desperate to have a quality midfielder, after letting Paul Pogba leave as free agent.

In case they miss out on De Jong, another big name is in the queue: Christian Eriksen.

Another trusted source, David Ornstein from the Athletic, confirmed that Man United has made an offer to the former Spurs’ man.

Eriksen has been in his best form since joining Brentford, but the 30-year-old now is a free agent after the short contract ended last season.

Man United used to chase after Eriksen, before he left for Inter Milan.
