Manchester United have consistently declared interest in Frenkie de Jong and have reportedly made an offer for the midfielder. With things not going in the favour of the Red Devils, it now look like they are set to consider another option.

The deal, which was agreed still depends upon the Dutch midfielder and his wants. With report suggesting that it could be that the heavy salary that he is due over the coming years may help him to decide against leaving Barcelona.

Manchester United are already planning for that eventuality. Sport detailed a report emanating out of France from L’Equipe, which suggests that United have contacted Paris Saint-Germain to secure the services of Leandro Paredes.

With the proposed asking price rumoured around €22m.

Paredes, 28, was a key part of the PSG team that got to the Champions League final in 2020, but has not lived up to the expectation this time. New manager Christophe Galtier is happy to see him depart too.

A deal with PSG on Paredes may force United to end their chase for Frenkie de Jong.
