Manchester City are reportedly set to rival Manchester United for the signature of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong this summer.
The 24-year-old’s future at Camp Nou has come into question in recent weeks, with one report suggesting that the Dutchman ‘is not completely happy’ at Barca and is consider an exit this summer.
Man United, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have all been credited with an interest in De Jong, but Fichajes reports that Man City are the latest club to join the race.
The report adds that Pep Guardiola is an admirer of the 40-cap Netherlands international and believed he would be a ‘great reinforcement’ to his midfield ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
De Jong, who is under contract with Barcelona until June 2026, could allegedly be available for around €68.8m (£58m) in the summer.
Since joining the Catalan giants from Ajax in 2019, De Jong has recorded 13 goals and 17 assists in 136 appearances across all competitions.
