Considering Erik ten Hag is the man in charge at Manchester United, seeing the Red Devils being linked with Dutch players comes as no surprise, especially if they are performing well.

That is the case of Teun Koopmeiners at Atalanta, who has become one of the more talked about players on the Italian market of late.

Gazzetta dello Sport cover the Dutchman in detail on Tuesday amid interest from Juventus, but mention Manchester United as another interested party.

While teams such as Liverpool have long been in the mix for the midfielder, the idea that the Red Devils could make a move only started after the January transfer window.

It has continued on and off since, but Gazzetta maintain it is really there, with Manchester United even believing they have a ‘preferential lane’ to get to him, having already struck big deals with Atalanta in the past with the transfers of new hero Amad Diallo and Rasmus Højlund.

Meanwhile, Juventus have been working hard to get ahead of the Premier League interest, knowing they don’t have the financial power to compete with them, especially when the player is expected to cost around €60m.

That being said, it’s made clear that Manchester United ‘will not be spectators’, especially as they see midfield as an area that needs bolstering in the summer, and Koopmeiners could immediately improve what is already there.
