FOOTBALL: Manchester United want to sign Jude Bellingham and Frenkie De Jong in sensational transfer

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Jude Bellingham and Frenkie De Jong next summer

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed are report­ed­ly inter­est­ed in sign­ing Jude Belling­ham and Frenkie De Jong next summer.

The Red Dev­ils are not plan­ning a major team over­haul in Jan­u­ary as Erik Ten Hag waits until the end of the season.

But accord­ing to ESPN, De Jong and Belling­ham are high on the man­ager’s wish list.

Man­ches­ter Unit­ed have been on the hunt for De Jong over the sum­mer and Ten Hag is keen to reunite with the Dutch­man he trained at Ajax.

How­ev­er, the deal did not mate­ri­al­ize and the play­er remained at Barcelona.

Belling­ham, mean­while, has promised to stay at Borus­sia Dort­mund for anoth­er sea­son, but plans to leave in the summer.

The 19-year-old is one of the hottest teenagers in world football.

That’s why top Euro­pean clubs such as Man­ches­ter City, Liv­er­pool, Chelsea and Real Madrid are inter­est­ed in sign­ing him.

But Man­ches­ter Unit­ed are con­fi­dent they can beat all the com­pe­ti­tion and bring him to Old Trafford.

Belling­ham has been in form since join­ing Dort­mund and showed his world-class tal­ent in Eng­land’s 3–3 draw with Ger­many on Monday.

Unit­ed boss Ten Hag believes De Jong and Belling­ham will bring his team clos­er to the style of play he wants.

The red dev­il boss has lost two match­es since tak­ing office, against Brighton and Brentford.

Since then, he has tak­en a more real­is­tic approach and has won four con­sec­u­tive Pre­mier League titles.

How­ev­er, Belling­ham and De Jong are the types of mid­field play­ers who can thrive in such a sys­tem, and the Dutch man­ag­er will like­ly want to move to a pos­ses­sion-based style in the future.
