Five Man Utd players whose careers ten Hag could revive

There are many intrigues in Manchester United’s squad heading into this crucial summer. But midfield is the position that needs the most restoration.

Red Devils have made a lot of money on this position over the years. However, some former coaches have not been successful in maximizing the value of many expensive acquisitions. Some of these former coaches will be free to leave this summer, such as Nemanja Matatic, Juan Mata, and Paul Pogba.

It is not surprising to see Erik ten Hag, new manager, linked with a few possible additions to that area, most notably Frenkie De Jong, a Barcelona international playmaker.

Mirror Sport has the latest United headlines including the latest news on efforts to strengthen the midfield options.

De Jong negotiations reach critical stage

United’s efforts are at a crossroads in their pursuit of De Jong, and Jorge Mendes, the super agent, is said to be poised to make a crucial decision on whether or not the transfer proceeds.

Barcelona have already rejected a £60 million offer for De Jong, although here is reportedly hope that a deal can be done. Ten Hag has reportedly sold his United vision to De Jong. The duo had previously worked well together at Ajax.

Spanish reports claim that Valencia’s Carlos Soler has been identified by the Catalan giants as a possible replacement. Mendes is believed to have recommended him, while Xavi, Barcelona’s head coach, is a fan.

De Jong was one of the top young players when he joined Camp Nou. However, he is yet to make a full transition in La Liga.

Eriksen offers

According to reports, Manchester United offered Christian Eriksen a contract.

The Danesian international, who joined Brentford last season on a temporary deal, was vital in the team’s successful pursuit of Premier League safety. He is expected to leave the Bees this summer, despite his interest.

Everton has also been linked to the Danish international, but United appear to have made the first move for him.

Eriksen’s incredible return to football was one story of the previous season. He had suffered a cardiac arrest while on the field at last summer’s European Championships when he was playing for Denmark.

Barcelona secures Gavi

Barcelona is said to be looking to tie down another midfielder, while one of their midfielders appears to be heading to United.

Gavi has emerged as one of the brightest prospects in world football and a £43 million release clause in his current contract may leave the 17-year-old vulnerable to possible approaches. United, Liverpool and Premier League rivals Manchester City are all believed to be interested.

Barcelona is working on a new deal with La Masia, the tyro who, despite being in his twenties, has made 10 senior appearances for Spain.

Gavi is now reportedly close to signing a contract that would include an enormous €1 billion (£860 million) release clause.
