New manager, Ten Hag, was in attendance to witness a dismal display from the Red Devils that pretty much summed up their terrible campaign.

The Dutch manager must improve the squad for the next season and reports suggest that Man Utd have submitted an offer to sign Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.According to sources in Spain, the Red Devils moved in with a bid worth 40 million euros (£33.7million) for the Netherlands midfielder. The offer was turned down by Barcelona.

Yesterday, another source mentioned that the La Liga giants are prepared to offload the former Ajax man but want a fee of at least 70 million euros from his sale.

However, it is stated that the Old Trafford outfit have no plans of raising their initial offer of £33.7million to hire the services of the 25-year-old star.

In the recently concluded campaign, De Jong featured in 46 games in all competition for the Catalan giants, scored 4 goals and provided 5 assists.

Barca earned the runners-up spot in the La Liga and will be taking part in the next season’s Champions League, something that Man United cannot offer as they will be playing in the Europa League.Matic is set to depart and Pogba is close to moving back to Juventus, therefore, Ten Hag must strengthen the midfield this summer. Would he be able to reunite with Frenkie de Jong? Only time will tell.
