As well as resolving the situation around Cristiano Ronaldo’s future, a deal to sign Frenkie de Jong remains the Red Devils’ priority as they look to add crucial quality to the midfield.

Achieving a deal with Barcelona is proving increasingly difficult, but while jokingly acknowledging the club’s interest in the Dutch star, Ten Hag is adamant they won’t sign any other players for the sake of it. .

Speaking during his press conference on De Jong when the player was brought up, he laughed: ‘We want Frenkie? I did not know.

“It’s about the good players and I can’t comment on a contracted player at another club.

“When you work with the current team and develop players in your current team, at the moment we have players in that position and we are performing very well.

“It would be a good situation (to have done all their business) but I have a team and I’m happy with the current team.
