Real Madrid make the first move for Barcelona and Man City target Frenkie de Jong

Manchester United, meanwhile, have also been urged to snap him up – along with his team-mate Matthijs de Ligt.

Former Ajax star Arnold Muhren reckons De Ligt and De Jong – would be brilliant additions to the Red Devils’ squad.

“There are two [Dutch] players who are good enough – Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt,” he told Omnisport.

“They can play for Man United without any problems.”
