Former Liverpool star Ryan Babel believes now is not the right time for Frenkie de Jong to join Manchester United.

         The Dutch international has been linked with the Red Devils. Although he declined to join the team in the summer and Babel sees now as not the right time to play at Old Trahfford pointed out that it would be more of a step backwards.UFABET 

         “As for Frenkie de Jong, I definitely wouldn’t recommend United.” Babel told MyBettingSites. “At least not now. He needs a team that plays on the ground.

         “Yes, Manchester United have the best coaches. If he has the right players he can do it. So far they have shown that Erik ten Hag knows how to do it. But it’s not like he did at Ajax right now.

         “So personally, for Frenkie to leave Barcelona for United, I think it’s a step back in terms of technique. I would love to see him at a team like Manchester City or even Arsenal.

The Dutchman is a versatile star. He can play in both central, attacking and defensive midfield, meaning he can play in both 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 formations if the manager so desires. Even in the centre-back position has been.

But the position that made him really break out was the “defensive midfielder”. Which is where Red Devils fans have longed for and believe. That this is the missing piece of the jigsaw that caused the team to go downhill until today.
