Manchester United want to secure deals for Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong, Feyenoord's Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen ahead of their pre-season tour, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly looking to secure deals for Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong, Feyenoord's Tyrell Malacia and free agent Christian Eriksen ahead of their pre-season tour.

The 20-time English champions will fly out to Thailand on July 8, four days before their first friendly of the summer against Liverpool in Bangkok, while they will then make the trip to Australia to face Melbourne Victory, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa before returning to Europe.

Man United's final two matches of the summer are against Atletico Madrid and Rayo Vallecano, before the team open their 2022-23 Premier League campaign against Brighton & Hove Albion on August 7.

According to The Mirror, Man United are keen to secure deals for De Jong, Malacia and Eriksen before the squad makes the trip to Thailand at the end of next week.

The report claims that the Red Devils have stepped up their attempts to sign Eriksen, with the attacker's contract at Brentford now officially coming to an end.

Ten Hag's side have allegedly told the 30-year-old that they are prepared to pay him £150,000 a week over the next two years in order to move to Old Trafford on a free transfer.

Meanwhile, the report claims that Man United are still confident of signing Malacia despite the recent developments surrounding the Feyenoord defender.

The 22-year-old's proposed move to Old Trafford has allegedly been held up by a representation problem, with the left-back using an intermediary that has not been authorised to conduct the deal.

However, it is believed that the move remains on track, with the English giants set to pay in the region of €15m (£12.9m) plus €2m (£1.7m) in add-ons for the Netherlands international, who made 50 appearances for Feyenoord last season, contributing one goal and five assists in the process.

Meanwhile, Man United are also believed to be closing in on the signature of Barcelona midfielder De Jong, with a deal potentially be completed towards the start of next week.

The newspaper claims that the Dutchman has been offered a five-year deal worth £250,000 a week to make the move to Old Trafford, where he would reunite with his former Ajax boss Ten Hag.

A recent report claimed that De Jong was refusing to leave Barcelona, with the 25-year-old unhappy at being pushed out of Camp Nou by his club and agent Ali Dursun.

However, Man United are said to be confident of signing the midfielder, having agreed a deal worth approximately €65m (£56.2m) plus performance-related add-ons with his La Liga club.

The 20-time English champions are also thought to be planning to bring a new centre-back to the club this summer, with Ajax's Lisandro Martinez a leading target, while Martinez's teammate Antony is also being strongly linked with a switch to Manchester.
