Man City launch swap bid for Man Utd target De Jong

Manchester City are in talks with Barcelona over a potential swap deal involving Frenkie De Jong.

City have long held an interest in Barca star De Jong as Pep Guardiola looks to reinforce his midfield.

Manchester United have been the name most linked with De Jong, but reports in Spain claim that City are not out of the race yet.

Mundo Deportivo reports that City and Barca are discussing a swap deal involving De Jong and Bernardo Silva.

Xavi is loathe to lose De Jong but would accept his exit if Silva arrived at Camp Nou.

United boss Erik ten Hag is hoping to reunite with De Jong at Old Trafford, having coached the Dutch midfielder at Ajax.
