Live on May 20 th, former Manchester United assistant Rene Murenstin recently said in a dialogue with the club’s official Nordic fan club that the Red Devils should sign De Jong.
Mullenstein, who served as Ferguson’s assistant, said: "Manchester United need a very good midfielder. I know they have casemiro, Eriksson and Bruno Fernandez. They are all experienced and powerful, but these three people have a little problem because their mentality is more inclined to attack."
"I will do my best to sign De Jong 100%. He is energetic and has good physical fitness. He can play a very, very good tactical role in the team organization stage."
"To be honest, I think if De Jong was unhappy in Barcelona, he would have joined Manchester United. But he is obviously happy to play for Barcelona, because otherwise he came to Manchester United last summer. There are always ways to solve financial problems such as Barcelona still owes him salary, so this can’t be the reason why the deal finally collapsed, but I can understand why Tenghahe wants to pursue this player. "
