He said:

"I've always thought he was a top player.They're saying Frenkie de Jong could be the first player to come in under Erik ten Hag and I would be saying: 'Yes, great signing.'

"He's not huge in terms of frame but he is quick with the ball, really good dribbler, can get out of tight situations, makes good decisions, good passer, his balance and dribbling ability are really good.

"[United] are a team who are looking for players who can control the ball and control the game and get the team functioning in terms of balance and possession. I think he would be a good addition."

Barcelona are reportedly ready to sell De Jong if they receive a € 60 million offer from Manchester United.
