Man Utd have agreed a deal for target centre-back

Manchester United continue to be in the hunt for a new centre-back during the summer transfer window.

We have already been successful in landing a new right-back, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and forward Daniel James, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears to have a few more targets on his list before we start the 2019-20 Premier League season against Chelsea on 11 August.

Leicester City’s Harry Maguire had been strongly linked in recent weeks, but it now appears we could land Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt after all.

The highly-rated Dutch international had originally been expected to join Juventus or Barcelona, but European football expert Julien Laurens now believes that Manchester United have agreed a deal with the Dutch giants instead.

Laurents has been quoted by ESPN (via the Metro) as saying:

“I think there’s a chance where Ajax will lose a little bit of patience and say ‘hang on a minute, PSG agreed, Manchester United agreed. In that case we stop talking to you and De Ligt can choose between the clubs that we actually have an agreement in place.”

Mattijs de Ligt was part of the Ajax side that we beat in the 2017 Europa League final and really made a name for himself this past season in captaining his side to the Dutch domestic double and the Champions League semi-finals.

Still only 19 years old and captain of the Amsterdam club, de Ligt is already a regular in the Netherlands national team. He stands at 6’2″ and as per his goals versus Real Madrid and Juventus in the Champions League last season; he’s a good threat from attacking set pieces.

  5. There is no doubt that Woodward is a problem. He’s trying to cope with matters above his ability. ManU seem to be short of cash this year. They are holding back and letting good players slip through their fingers because they don’t have the cash to buy. They will end up buying poor players and then blaming OLG when they end up in sixth place again!

  6. I am Issa from Tanzania, we have some pics which show de lift wear juve Jersey, but still you tell us that he will sign for man u… Don’t play with our passion.

  7. According to me man united would have peformed well in the recent season but pogba’s rangles & reactions with coach & fellow player also constituted to the declain of united so his presence will cost the team negatively. WAISWA BASHIR IN UGANDA

    Years back we stop enjoying football support. As die hated M Utd supporter, I ask management to change their market strategy and start buying world class players as we are among the richest clubs in the world.
