Ex-Man Utd coach Meulensteen: Why De Jong will suit Ten Hag plans
Former Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen is backing the move for Frenkie de Jong.
Barcelona midfielder De Jong has been tipped to make Man United more dominant by Meulensteen.
Meulensteen told Voetbal International: “In Erik's (Ten Hag) way of thinking it is a logical first purchase. Frenkie is of course a great footballer and I would really like to see him at United.
“He is technically very strong. That should also be a lot better at United. If you just look at the statistics: that the opponent regularly has more possession would have been unthinkable with us.
“Frenkie can help them to be much more dominant."
