Man Utd face Bayern Munich, Man City De Jong competition

Manchester United face competition for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Barcelona's ex-Ajax star De Jong emerged as Erik ten Hag's top summer target at the get-together yesterday in Amsterdam.

The meeting took place less than 24 hours after Ten Hag — who labelled his new job 'a fantastic challenge with something to build and win' — clinched the Dutch title with Ajax.

But United admit it will be tough to get the playmaker away from Barcelona and also fight off interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and neighbours Manchester City, says The Sun.

The Red Devils' rivals can all offer Champions League football and the chance of winning Europe's biggest prize while United could yet end up in the Europa Conference League.
