The brand new Dutch boss of United has made it clear to Outdated Trafford CEO Richard Arnold that he doesn’t need the 25-year-old Barcelona star to final till the tip of the switch window on September 1.
Ten Haag, 52, desires to know if a deal could be reached with the 25-year-old Dutch playmaker by the tip of subsequent week, in any other case he’ll change his objectives.
The previous Ajax coach has given Arnold quite a few gamers from the want record in all positions, amongst his priorities – the seize of de Jong.
However he doesn’t need to wait all summer season till de Jong is let down, and his plans for the brand new season will probably be thwarted if he fails to succeed in an settlement with Barcelona and the participant.
That’s the reason he’s in search of a response from Barcelona as quickly as doable, as United’s first bid of £ 53 million plus £ 7 million was rejected.

However Ten Hag insisted he wouldn’t cling his hat to get de Jong as a result of he missed different targets.
That is why United sources say the membership’s officers are “working exhausting” to make the deal occur.
Ten Hague’s first sport for United would be the baptism of fireside in opposition to Liverpool in Bangkok, Thailand, on July 12.
This was shortly adopted by a double header by Down Underneath in Melbourne in opposition to Melbourne Victory and Crystal Palace at MCG earlier than the long term of the tour in opposition to Aston Villa in Perth ended on 23 July.
As Manchester Metropolis, Liverpool and Tottenham have made progress within the switch market early, it’s believed that Outdated Trafford senior employees are aggravated that they’re already being criticized for the shortage of progress, because the switch window solely opened final Friday.
However United’s newest document within the switch window is unlikely to encourage the Ten Hague with a lot confidence, as stars resembling Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani and left-back Porto defender Alex Telles signed a contract on the 2020 deadline.
The brand new coach doesn’t need comparable issues with switch home windows, which prevented David Moyes when he turned United’s boss after the resignation of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
Ed Woodward, head of United on the time after Ferguson’s early departure and CEO David Gill that summer season, had quite a few objectives, however United stumbled till the final days of the switch window with out the brand new signings Moyes needed.
They ultimately received Marouane Fellaini for £ 27.5 million on the day of the deadline, giving up their Everton defender Leighton Baines, who was unsuccessfully pursued till the final day.
This summer season window instantly put Moyes within the background – and he was fired solely ten months later, as many felt that the shortage of switch exercise gave him little likelihood of success with a lineup that wanted renewal.
Ten Hague doesn’t need to be in an identical state of affairs, and though he will probably be given extra time to succeed than Moyes, he wants new faces to urgently start restructuring at United.
