According to Sport, Manchester United seems obsessed with Frenkie De Jong.
Former striker Andy Cole claimed they cannot seem desperate for the midfielder.
Erik ten Hag’s side remained linked with the 25-year-old since last summer and could make another attempt after the season.
Andy Cole did a great many things with Manchester United throughout his career.
However, he spoke to Sport about a player, Frenkie De Jong, who has long remained linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Cole claimed Manchester United looked desperate in their chase for De Jong and believes the midfielder has to make a clear choice.
He insisted the club have to show their class and that they cannot wait forever for the 25-year-old to decide where he wants to play his football next.
The Manchester United-De Jong saga dragged on last summer as Erik ten hag was keen to reunite with the 25-year-old.
Despite agreeing on a fee with Barcelona, De Jong did not want to leave the club of his dreams.
From his perspective, he remained well-settled in the city and did not want to leave the Catalans for Manchester.
Manchester United remains interested and could launch another attempt in the coming summer.
Ten Hag still has that vacant midfield spot alongside Casemiro and would want the 25-year-old to take his place.
Chelsea also want De Jong and considers him one of their priority signings in the summer.
