Manchester United keen on signing Nigel de Jong?

A report suggests that Nigel de Jong will join Manchester United this summer, unless his wage demands at San Siro are met.

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a summer move for AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong.

The 30-year-old, who spent three seasons at local rivals Manchester City, is said to be keen on a move away from San Siro unless his wage demands are met.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims that the Netherlands international is holding out for an annual salary in the region of £1.42m, with United willing to offer him in excess of £30,000 a week.

It is also suggested that, with fellow defensive midfielders Michael Essien and Sulley Muntari expected to leave Milan this summer, De Jong is in a strong position to negotiate fresh terms at the fallen Italian giants.

Louis van Gaal managed the 2012 Premier League winner during his time in charge of the Dutch national team.
