Man Utd have three ways to win over Frenkie de Jong and avoid Erik ten Hag nightmare | Football | Sport


Start the season well

Another way United can attract big names in the latter stages of the window is by starting the new Premier League campaign in good form. Ten Hag begins his reign with a home clash against Brighton – which should be earmarked as a chance to get three points early on. 

A difficult first six fixtures also includes Liverpool, Leicester and Arsenal. Get through those games with a few positive results and United might change a few perceptions. That could even convince Cristiano Ronaldo to remain. 

Offer a huge wage increase

The Red Devils could probably get this lengthy, slightly tedious saga over and done with simply by offering a monstrous contract. If Ten Hag wants his former Ajax player so badly then surely United will be willing to give him at least most of what he wants. 

If Ronaldo departs this month, that could free up around £500,000 in weekly wages for United to sign some of their key targets. They could use up most of those funds on De Jong.
