Transfer: Great signing for Manchester United – Redknapp on midfielder

Liverpool legend, Jamie Redknapp, has given his verdict on the possibility of Manchester United signing Frenkie de Jong.

Redknapp said the 25-year-old Dutchman is a great signing for Man United should he eventually joins the Red Devils.

According to him, De Jong is inside the top three midfielders in world football.

Man United has set plans in motion to sign De Jong from Barcelona this summer.

The Premier League giants are said to have reached an agreement with Barcelona over a deal for De Jong.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp said: “I put him in the top two or three midfield players in the world.

“He can drive with the ball, he’s so creative with his passing. He’s got real pace as well.

“I think he’s going to be an amazing signing for Man Utd. I’m really excited about the Premier League. I think Haaland and De Jong are two of the best signings we’ve seen for a long time, I genuinely believe that.

“He has all the attributes you want to play midfield. He can cover ground, is skilful, a great passer… I have been really impressed with him. It’s not just a big opportunity for him, it’s a great signing for Man Utd.”
