Man Utd 'set to offer Van de Beek in swap transfer for AC Milan midfielder Bennacer' despite Ten Hag connection | The Sun

The Algerian midfielder is thought to want to leave AC Milan this summer, with the Red Devils already being linked with a swoop.

It's claimed the Red Devils are keen for a "discount" on Bennacer, and could offer Van de Beek plus a small fee in order to secure his services.

De Jong meanwhile has struggled at Old Trafford ever since his switch to the Prem in 2020.

The 25-year-old was even sent out on loan to Everton in the second half of the last campaign.

And things weren't much better for him at Goodison Park.

There had been hope that Ten Hag's arrival could spark the midfielder back into life and help him rediscover his best form.
