Man Utd transfer target Frenkie de Jong hosts Barcelona masterclass while Robert Lewandowski shines in Nou Camp debut

MANCHESTER UNITED target Frenkie de Jong and new signing Robert Lewandowski stole the show as Barcelona beat Pumas UNAM 6-0.

United have been hot on their heels for De Jong all summer, although he is reportedly unwilling to move to Old Trafford.

But De Jong’s resistance hasn’t deterred the Red Devils, who hope to persuade the midfielder to make a move by offering him a £450,000-a-week contract.

And it was clear why United are ready to make him the club’s highest-paid player as he shone at the Nou Camp on Sunday night, in footage shared by Sport Bible.

The Dutch ace sent former team-mate Dani Alves the wrong way before charging from his own half into enemy territory and using his blistering pace to outpace a number of opponents.

He then split the defense in two with an intriguing pass that should have resulted in a goal.

Not that it mattered anyway as Barca were already leading 5-0 at that point.

De Jong then put the game to bed in the 84th minute and his performance continued to lament United fans Twitter about how they need him after watching their team crumble to Brighton.

However, De Jong wasn’t the only star on fire on Barca night.

It was Lewandowski’s first appearance at the Nou Camp since joining from Bayern Munich in the summer – and it’s safe to say he wasn’t impressed by the occasion.

The 33-year-old opened the scoring in style after just three minutes as he circled Puma’s keeper before curling the ball into the net from the tightest of angles, Facebook News reported.

The striker then became a provider as he twice served Pedri lavishly with skillful through balls.

Lewandowski’s second assist was a thing of beauty as he cheekily heaved the ball down the path of oncoming Pedri, who made a short run before pushing home.

However, Barca need to make some cuts in their squad to register Lewandowski as well as other newcomers Jules Kounde and Raphinha.

La Liga have reportedly given Barca the ultimatum ahead of the new season to ease the club’s crippling debt burden.
