Manchester United “are interested in Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong” as they look for possible replacements for Paul Pogba.

The French midfielder is expected to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires next summer and will be able to begin negotiations with potential suitors from January.

But United may have already identified the player who will occupy Pogba’s boots at 24-year-old Dutch international De Jong.

Reports in Spain have suggested that cash-strapped Barcelona are willing to let De Jong leave the Camp Nou for £ 75m, just three years after he signed him from Ajax.

Manchester City have been linked to him, with some reports hinting that a trade deal for Raheem Sterling could be in the offing.

But The independent They say United could also join the race for a player who has racked up 107 appearances for Barcelona since his £ 65m transfer in 2019.

De Jong, who has made 38 appearances for the Netherlands, was seen as Barcelona’s future, but his colossal debt of more than £ 1bn is likely to force a huge sale of key players.

United’s lack of an effective central midfield was a contributing factor to the losing streak of results that led to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s sack over the weekend.

Pogba is currently injured with a thigh problem, but the French World Cup winner has never scaled the heights expected since returning to United in 2016.

He wants his current contract of £ 290,000 a week doubled to equal the £ 480,000 a week of Cristiano Ronaldo’s higher income if he is to consider staying at United.

With Pogba linked to Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and the former Juventus club, his agent Mino Raiola fanned the flames by saying last week that ‘December is the month of dreams’ when it comes to transfers.
