Report: Manchester United line up Nigel de Jong move

Manchester United are reportedly ready to launch a £6m bid to sign AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong this summer.

Manchester United are lining up a move for AC Milan midfielder Nigel de Jong, according to a report.

New Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal coaches the 29-year-old for the Netherlands and believes that he will be the perfect addition to his side's midfield at Old Trafford next season in an enforcer role.

The 62-year-old has told United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to launch a £6m bid for the former Manchester City midfielder, reports The People.

De Jong made 42 appearances for Milan in all competitions last season, scoring two goals.

Netherlands' forward Memphis Depay is congratulated after scoring during a Group B football match between Australia and the Netherlands at the Beira-Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre during the 2014 FIFA World Cup on June 18, 2014
