The Dutchman is on United's radar as they look to bolster their midfield this summer ahead of Erik ten Hag's arrival. Xavi has claimed he would like to keep the 25-year-old at the Nou Camp but financial pressures could lead to his departure.
Ten Hag managed the Holland international during their time at Ajax prior to his switch to the La Liga side but amid Barcelona's ongoing financial trouble, his future remains unclear. The Manchester Evening News reported earlier this month that the Reds were weighing up a potential 75m move.
And now Gabriel Sans via Reshad Rahman has reported that the Spanish giants will pay close attention to possible offers for United target, De Jong, and former Red Memphis Depay. It has been well documented that improvement is needed in the midfield position at Old Trafford this summer.
Paul Pogba's representatives were reportedly in Turin earlier this week of a potential return back to the Serie A side. The World Cup winner initially swapped Manchester for Juventus before making his return to the Premier League side in 2016.
