The shaken giants Manchester United and Barcelona are largely aware of the fact that they will have to seriously deal with the reorganization when creating plans for the winter transfer window. The situation found by Ralf Rangnick and Xavi, after inheriting the teams from OIe Gunnar Solskjaer and Ronald Koeman, is far from the ambitions of the English and Spanish clubs, and the first step in returning to the desired track is the reorganization of the playing staff.
Rangnick took the task of arranging the sports sector at Old Trafford very seriously and has already announced concrete steps, emphasizing that the club will not keep players in its ranks at any cost. "Players have to want to stay and play for a club.
If a player doesn't want to play for a big club like Manchester United, even in the long run, I don't think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind." "This is a huge club, with fantastic fans.
I don't think anyone at the club should try to persuade a player to stay, "said Rangnick, referring primarily to Paul Pogba, who is nearing the end of his contract. One of the potential solutions in the position of the French midfielder whose contract expires next summer could be Frenkie de Jong, a Dutchman who is currently defending the colors of Barcelona.
According to the British media, the football player of the Catalan team is among the players who could leave Barcelona, and bring them huge money.
At the beginning of his mandate, the new strategist of Barcelona showed that the children of the club will be in the foreground, and with such a philosophy and high income of the Dutchman, a possible parting would even be seen as a good business move.
The Spanish media estimate that De Jong's freedom could amount to around 80,000,000 euros, which is also an important factor from the perspective of Barcelona, which has already compiled a wish list that prioritizes the engagement of strikers, with Erling Haaland, Ferran Torres, and Edinson Cavani.
At Old Trafford, on the other hand, De Jong would ideally fit into Rangnick's system. Like Barcelona, United will have to think about partings that would relieve the budget in parallel with the arrivals, and there is more and more talk about the dissatisfaction of another Frenchman in the trophy Premier League.
Anthony Martial has completely fallen into the shadow of the competition this season. "Anthony wants to leave the club in January. He wants to play and that is why he demands to part. I will talk to the club's leaders soon," said the representative of the striker, who arrived from Monaco in 2015 for 60,000,000 euros.
Pogba, Martial, De Jong, Haaland... The list of players who will be in focus in the coming weeks is quite long, and it is certain that we will be looking at Old Trafford and Camp Nou
