He’s been linked with Manchester United all summer and it’s a move that makes so much sense – he’s a player that ten Hag knows well, while he could also be the missing link between the defence and attack to actually bring some flow to their game again.

The problem is actually convincing the Dutchman to leave, and a report from Sport via Football Espana suggests that it’s simply not going to happen.

If it’s all true then it seems to be pretty unequivocal – de Jong has recently bought a house in the area and clearly wasn’t planning to leave, while he’s also told his teammates that it’s impossible that he leaves so something is eventually going to have to give.
