Manchester United are closing in on the signings of Dutch duo Frenkie De Jong and Tyrell Malacia, according to reports.

The Manchester Evening News claim the club have ‘agreed deals in principle’ for both players, who could become Erik ten Hag’s first signings at Old Trafford.

The paper adds that the new United boss is favouring players ‘affiliated with Ajax or Dutch football’, while the Red Devils have also been linked with moves for Antony, Lisandro Martinez and Jurrien Timber.

But the arrivals of De Jong and Malacia may represent the start of a Dutch revolution at United, and they could follow in the footsteps of some Old Trafford greats.

The Netherlands have produced some of the Red Devils’ greatest overseas players and three of the treble-winning squad in 1999 were Dutch.

In total, 13 players from the country have represented United over the years, including two of the current squad.

We’ve looked through the records and ranked them in order, finishing with who we believe is the greatest Dutchman to have played for United.

Before checking out our list, how many of the 13 can you name?
