What the three possible signings would bring to Manchester United
De Jong would be an “amazing signing” for Manchester United’s midfield, with his excellent ability to find space coupled with his excellent ball progression skills making him an instant upgrade for the club.
Rabiot was a vital part of the Juventus team last season, making 45 appearances in all competitions, showing his excellent ball recycling ability and physicality, meaning he could be a great partner potential for De Jong.
Gakpo is brilliant to watch, with his electric pace and deadly finishing, and this saw the 23-year-old striker score 21 goals in 47 games last season. He also has the physique to handle the Premier League, coupled with excellent creativity that makes him a great fit for English football.
