Man Utd: Erik ten Hag has already hinted why Frenkie de Jong won’t solve key issue | Football | Sport


The Dutch coach has largely deployed a system with one holding midfielder this season, with Edson Alvarez filling that role. But during De Jong’s final season at Ajax, Ten Hag opted to play another midfielder alongside the United target.

If De Jong does complete a move to United, it will be interesting to see how Ten Hag builds the midfield unit around both the 24-year-old and Fernandes. His previous comments though indicate that United may well need to go in the market for another defensive-minded midfielder to solve their problems.

Matic has already confirmed he will be leaving the club this summer while both Fred and McTominay will face battles to keep their spot. Ten Hag may also look to United’s youngsters to step up, giving the likes of Charlie Savage and Zidane Iqbal opportunities to show their talents.
