Erik Ten Hag to Battle Barcelona Again

Erik Ten Haag

Due to their shared interest in Royal Antwerp star Arthur Vermeeren, Erik Ten Hag and Barcelona may engage in another transfer war.

Interest in Vermeeran

The 18-year-old has continued to draw interest. Some of the top organizations in Europe are now considering making a move. After helping his team win the Belgian championship and go to the Champions League, the midfielder has already been compared to Andres Iniesta.
Manchester United and Barcelona are watching Vermeeren. According to Mundo Deportivo, Catalan CEO Deco has already spoken with Marc Overmars, his Antwerp counterpart, about moving to the head of the queue.

Quality Appreciated

Mark van Bommel, the manager of Vermeeren at the moment and a former player at Barcelona, has said: “I am extremely delighted that he has been playing with us all this time. It is amazing how far he has come in a year. Since he began playing, he has been determined. He is intriguing to all the teams, not just Barcelona.

A Known Rival For Erik Ten Hag

During Erik Ten Hag’s tenure, United has previously dealt with difficult situations when playing Barcelona, having attempted and failed to negotiate Frenkie de Jong’s exit from the Nou Camp. Erik Ten Hag was interested in getting back together with the player from Ajax.

The Dutchman remained in Spain during the summer’s drama, despite various rumors that said he was headed for Manchester.

Due to this, United later looked into other choices in the market. They ultimately decided to sign Casemiro, who is noticeably older than De Jong.
Last season, after United defeated Barcelona in the Europa League, Erik Ten Hag made it clear how much he loved and admired De Jong. He remarked, “Frenkie is a wonderful player and will boost the roster for any club.

“Your team will be stronger if you can get him on the team. In Spain, he improved much more. It was a joy working with him since he plays out from the back and is a wonderful player.

A Place to Dream For

Both United and Barcelona have positioned themselves as organizations where rising talents may advance alongside experienced ones. The Nou Camp’s academy has just graduated Lamine Yamal. This week, Dan Gore, a youngster, made his debut for Erik Ten Hag.
