MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly looking to sign Jude Bellingham AND Frenkie de Jong in the summer.
The Red Devils are not planning a major roster overhaul in January, Erik ten Hag will wait until the end of the season.
But he will then look to bring in exciting talent – and ESPN understand De Jong and Bellingham are high on his wish list.
Man Utd have been linked with De Jong all summer and Ten Hag was keen to get back together with the Netherlands international, who he had brought through at Ajax.
But a deal never materialized and he stayed at Barcelona.
Meanwhile, Bellingham has signed with Borussia Dortmund for another season but will leave in the summer.
The 19-year-old is one of the top rated teenagers in world football.
As a result, he has attracted interest from Europe’s biggest clubs including Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid, all of whom are believed to be interested in enlisting his services.
However, Man Utd are hoping they can beat all the competition and bring him to Old Trafford.
Bellingham has been great since joining Dortmund and showed that world-class talent on the international stage for England in Monday’s 3-3 draw with Germany.

United boss Ten Hag believes De Jong and Bellingham can help bring the team closer to their desired style of play.
The Red Devils boss lost his first two games in charge against Brighton and Brentford.
He then switched to a more pragmatic approach and enjoyed a four-game winning streak in the Premier League.
But the Dutchman will remain keen to move towards a possession-based style going forward, with Bellingham and De Jong being the kind of midfielders who can thrive in such a system.
