Former Premier League striker, Kevin Campbell has urged Manchester United to get a deal for Barcelona midfielder, Frenkie de Jong this summer.

Campbell insisted that De Jong is a brilliant player who is far better than Man United midfielders, Scott McTominay and Fred.

De Jong joined Barcelona from Ajax for an initial sum of €75 million in 2019.

The 25-year-old Dutch star has been heavily linked with a move to Man United since the club appointed Erik Ten Hag as their permanent manager.

“Frenkie de Jong is a player I covered a lot when I was working in Spain. He’s just brilliant,” Campbell, a former Arsenal star, told Football Insider.

“He’s way better than McTominay and Fred. He’s way above them. The key is getting him. They have got to get him.”

“If they get him in there, all of a sudden that midfield looks very different. He can do it all. I have seen him play in three or four different positions in one game, including as a centre-half. He did it all effortlessly. He’s a really, really good footballer.”
