The Frenkie de Jong transfer story looks set to come to a frustrating end for Man United as the Red Devils look set to lose the Dutch international midfielder, depriving the club of the chance to reunite new coach Erik ten Hag with a former boss. That lieutenant.
De Jong has dropped any interest in joining the English giants and if he does more in the Premier League he looks more in line with a move to rival Chelsea (for more information see link below).
As such, Man United have reportedly put Leicester City midfielder Yuri Tillmans on their summer transfer shortlist at the request of Ten Hag according to Ben Jacobs of CBS Sports.
Man United’s interest in Tillmans is also real and growing. It’s a much cheaper and less complicated option than Frenkie de Jong. Erik Ten Hag was shortlisted for his midfield. Tillmans, under Ralph Rangnick, has indicated that he does not want to move to him #MUFC But Ten Hag might reconsider.

Tillmans has been unwilling to consider a move to Old Trafford under Ralph Rangnick according to Jacobs, but he is said to be more open to the idea of appearing under Ten Hag during the introduction of Man United with a view to an affordable transfer should any official interest arise.
Any legitimate interest in the former RSC academy graduate Anderlecht would put them at odds with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, however, and the Gunners remain linked with a serious interest in the 25-year-old despite the north London side having already completed this. Window.
Arsenal will likely have to get rid of a midfielder or two before they are in a position to take a formal approach to Tillmans, giving Manchester United a window of opportunity if the Red Devils move quickly.
