Manchester United are in talks with Barcelona over a second player this summer amid their ongoing pursuit of Frenkie de Jong, according to reports in Spain. Erik ten Hag is looking to sign Blaugrana defender Sergino Dest and would be willing to send current first-choice right-back Diogo Dalot the other way to seal a deal.
The Dutchman wants to upgrade his right-back options among midfield and attacking signings in the final three weeks of the summer transfer window. And while United are listening to offers for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Dalot also seems to be in the shop window before the September 1 deadline.
According to Sport, United are in talks with Barcelona over signing Dest this month as Ten Hag eyes reinforcements throughout his squad. Barca are demanding around £17million for the USMNT defender, but the Red Devils are ready to sweeten a deal by including Dalot, who has started the season as Ten Hag’s primary right-back.
The 23-year-old leapfrogged Wan-Bissaka in the club’s pecking order last season but has failed to convince since being signed by Jose Mourinho in 2018. And he was one of many players criticised for his disappointing role in last Sunday’s opening Premier League weekend defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
