Following the stories saying Juventus are interested in the signing of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie De Jong, website Tutto Juve tried to find more information on this chase.

So they went and made an interview with Sport journalist Jordi Gil Tarres, who brought more of a local view on the player’s situation at the Camp Nou.

And it turns out that despite being mostly about Juventus, the interview ended up with several mentions to Manchester United, who seem to be a strong contender to sign the Dutchman as well.

One of those answers was with Tutto Juve asking whether De Jong is more of a player for an English club or for Juventus.

“He could play for either club, but for his box-to-box game he seems more suited to the Premier League and Manchester United,” said Tarres.

Tarres also claimed that Juventus may not be able to afford De Jong, while Manchester United, who will have the midfielder’s former coach Erik ten Hag next season, could end up being a more likely destination.

“From the news coming to us from Italy, Juventus would not seem to be able to invest the 70 million required for de Jong.

The player, at this moment, does not even want to move from Barcelona, and if he were to leave Manchester United would seem to be his best option for two reasons: the Premier League and Erik ten Hag, with whom he triumphed at Ajax.”
