Red Devils chasing bargain Serie A midfielder.
Manchester United are ready to make a big-money contract offer to AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong this summer, according to the Metro.
The experienced Netherlands international is set to be out of contract at the San Siro at the end of this season, with United hoping to lure him to Old Trafford to bolster their options in the middle of the park.
Louis van Gaal is a big fan of his fellow countryman, and could make the former Manchester City star one of his next big-name signings as he continues to revamp his squad.
Van Gaal was quoted today as saying he was chasing a creative midfield player, but de Jong’s defensive nous could also be useful to this team.
