Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong has twice again showed against Pumas UNAM why Manchester United are definitely need him at Old Trafford.
Man United have been linked with a move to sign De Jong from Barca all summer but both clubs are yet to get the deal done for the Dutchman.
There are reports claiming that the former Ajax midfielder is more open to joining Chelsea than Manchester United this summer, maybe because Chelsea can offer the midfielder Champions League football, something United cannot, thanks to the fact they finished 6th last season in the Premier League.
In a friendly game against Pumas UNAM, Frenkie de Jong did not only score late in the game during Barca’s 6-0 demolition of Pumas but also showed his dominance in the midfield after running through the midfield and broke Pumas backline with a sublime through pass. Although he would be gutted his superb run didn’t result to a goal.

Speaking of Frenkie de Jong’s goal, the Netherlands international scored late in the game, after that superb run, to round up Barcelona’s 6-0 thumping of Pumas UNAM.
The midfielder is still linked with a move to United but reports emerged this week that Manchester United are looking to sign Adrien Rabbiot from Juventus.
Manchester United got off to a losing start in the Premier League after both Scott McTominay and Fred underperformed against Brighton and Hove Albion.
