Manchester United want to swap two players for two Barcelona stars

Erik ten Hag will take over as permanent manager of Manchester United at the end of this season. The Dutch tactician will rebuild the Red Devils squad.

According to Fichajes (via BarcaUniversal) United have Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay in the list of players they want to sign in the transfer market this summer. The two Barcelona stars are in the plans for the Red Devils who want to start a revolution under Ten Hag.

Ten Hag is interested in De Jong after helping his team to become one of Europe’s top midfielders at Ajax. The 24-year-old had played under the bald coach for three years.

Together with Ten Hag, De Jong helped Ajax win the Eredivisie title and the KNVB Cup. In addition, he was also part of the Ajax squad that reached the 2019 Champions League semifinals.

While Memphis Depay has a history with Manchester United. He moved to Old Trafford in 2015 after signing from PSV Eindhoven. Wearing the sacred jersey number seven, he is expected to be the next big MU star.

Unfortunately, Depay, who was contracted by Manchester United for 30 million pounds, actually failed to show his best performance. He then left in 2017 and joined French Ligue 1 side Lyon.

Man Utd are reportedly ready to offer 100 million pounds or around Rp. 1.8 trillion to bring in the Barcelona superstar duo. The Red Devils could also use Alex Telles and Scott McTominay as part of the deal.

Manchester United are reportedly looking to bring Barcelona star duo Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay to Old Trafford this summer. The Red Devils are considering using left-back Alex Telles and midfielder Scott McTominay in this endeavor.

Telles joined United in the summer of 2021 from Portuguese side FC Porto. The Brazilian played as a substitute for Luke Swah.

He has already endured a difficult debut season with underappreciated performances among staunch Red Devils supporters. In fact, Telles got a lot of playing time because of Shaw’s injury.

While McTominay is a product of the Manchester United academy that emerged in 2017. Since then he has been a mainstay in the Red Devils starting XI.

Even so, McTominay’s performance in midfield with Fred and Paul Pogba did not always win the hearts of MU fans. In fact, the Scottish midfielder is a versatile player.

McTominay can play in midfield, defensive midfielder and central defender. He played this role for the Scottish national team.

Another player Manchester United want to bring in the summer transfer window of 2022 is Lautaro Martinez. Italian journalist Marco Barzaghi says United are willing to give Anthony Martial plus 43 million pounds to Inter Milan to bring the Argentine to Old Trafford.

However, the Red Devils’ move to get the 24-year-old’s signature will not be easy. Because Martinez has signed a new contract that is valid until 2026.

Moreover, Martinez and his representatives always insist that they are happy with their life in Milan. Moreover, Inter Milan is also not interested in receiving Anthony Martial at the Giuseppe Meazza.

However, Inter are expected to be open to a cash sale of Martinez given their recent financial turmoil. However, his new contract will put the Italian club in a strong position to demand a large transfer fee.

If Martinez agrees to leave Inter this summer, Manchester City and Liverpool are believed to be his favorite destinations over Manchester United.
