Manchester United finally look to be exploring other midfield options as the saga involving Barcelona ’s Frenkie de Jong continues to rumble on.

The Netherlands international has been the Red Devils' top target throughout the summer but a deal has been stalling over his lack of desire to move to Old Trafford.

For comparison, De Jong averaged just 2.39 while at United, McTominay averaged 1.23 and Fred just 0.58.

Not just that, but the 23-year-old is an excellent ball carrier.

It’d reportedly take a figure of around £50m to prise the highly-rated midfielder from Sporting, which considering United were willing to pay over £70m for De Jong, makes it a worthwhile investment.

And given the interest in him from other clubs, the Red Devils probably won’t have a better chance than this summer to get a deal over the line.

United had previously agreed a £71million fee with the Catalan giants, but are now actively looking at other options as De Jong continues to exhibit doubts over potentially joining the club.
