More information According to Spanish media, Manchester United have confirmed their intention to sign Sergino Dest from Barcelona in addition to Frenkie de Jong. According to manager Erik ten Hag, the Red Devils are looking to add some extra quality to their squad, and right-back is one of several areas in need of improvement. United are refusing to let go of De Jong, and there is still hope that a deal can be struck in the final days of the transfer window. However, he does not appear to be the only Barcelona player of interest to the Old Trafford hierarchy, and a second deal may be more feasible. According to SPORT, United want to sign Dest after indicating an interest in him. The 21-year-old is one of several players who could leave the Camp Nou this summer, but Xavi still has high regard for the USMNT international. The Manchester United striker shortlist pecking order has emerged, with two targets on Erik ten Hag’s radar. Man United continue to be very interested in Frenkie de Jong ( GETTY) “He’s fast and defends well,” he said on Dest. He’s a good player who is still young and will be important in the future.” United are looking to add another right-back to compete with Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Dalot is expected to start the season as United’s first-choice, while Wan-future Bissaka’s is unknown. Crystal Palace failed to pursue their interest, while Roma and Atletico Madrid were also interested in the defender. Frenkie de Jong has ‘given Barcelona a pay-cut ultimatum’ over a £72 million contract.

Sesko, Benjamin Man United’s target Frenkie de Jong will only join Chelsea if Barcelona forces a transfer. United still has a lot of money to spend after signing Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro Martinez. Ten Hag is determined to up the pressure on the board to bring in some new faces but that currently looks unlikely before Sunday’s Premier League opener against Brighton. The Red Devils are still looking to shift some of the deadwood within their squad too with Wan-Bissaka, Eric Bailly, Alex Telles and Phil Jones among those likely to depart. Dest has also attracted interest from Chelsea in the past and they could yet return to the table. The Blues have opened talks with Barcelona over a deal to sign De Jong as they look to beat United to the Dutchman. Thomas Tuchel’s side also want a right-back as they continue to draw up a shortlist of targets. Denzel Dumfries is one name that has been discussed while Kyle Walker-Peters is also of interest to the Blues.
