Man Utd have agreed a deal for target centre-back

0 Shares

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.

  1. United can dream. We will not get a class player like him while woodward is dealing with transfer matters. I suppose we all can dream.

    • While its hard to disagree with you, I hope your wrong something has to change.

  2. This is all but total nonsense that we are all tired of,am a kenyan Man utd fan but am very disappointed on how Edwoord and Glaziers are dealing with the transfer market,we all can see our bitter rivals buying best player while we are chasing player that are grown tired
    I urger all fans to act!!!

  3. am also disappointed by what is going on there because the club chief is not serious with transfers,am a Kenyan man u fan and am not happy at all

  4. This is stupidity. I’m a Ghanaian man utd fan, I’m even tired of Woodward and the Glaziers making things worst for the team. Releasing of money to buy players become problem again for them and they are expecting trophies. I’m tired!!

  5. I’m a Nigeria,and I’m a united fan I’m also tired please you guys should release money so that this good coach can get the players of his choice

  6. am a united fun from Kenya BT am not happy with how united r making their signings Woodward should style up

  7. according to me I could say that man United must be changed from top us we can see Woodward is the problem of Manchester United and till we change him no progress . appointing new coach twice every season will not bring changes United need quality players and bring then if you want United to win trophies thanks by ALI yussuf

  8. I don’t understand u the family of Manchester united what is happened in transfer window other club are busy buying good plays and u are their watching pls go out there and buy good plays let us look for trophy I’m from Nigeria fan of Manchester united

  9. My view as a fan of red devils is that good players have to be bought and be shaped into the best to win trophies likes Sir Furgy used to.

  10. I am a Man Utd fan from Nigeria. I am sick and tired of all these speculations. Can’t Man Utd buy players once and stop following players around. I think it’s time Woodward should leave this club. We are tired of getting heart breaks from players. Give the coach chance to pick players that he can comfortably work with.

  11. it’s hilarious seeing how man utd are doing transfers over the last few years… our closest rivals are going for the very best and what the ‘chiefs’ at utd is interested in is average footballers and they want to win the league. as a die-hard utd fan I can’t believe it’s happening… our games are no longer interesting to watch. y still keeping pogba?

  12. Iam united nigerian fan and iam so tired the way Woodward and Glazers dealing the transfer our premier league rivals are buying world class players while united is going very pedigree just if u can’t let the team be sold to the people whose are ready to invest for the team and win trophies.

  13. Im a man utd fan from Nigeria, and I’m tired of these fake news, let Woodward be sacked so that a better CEO will emerge ?? up Manchester united

  14. Am a Nigerian fan of man u,the min problem is we no how to recognize good players for other team to sign…..man u is too stingy to buy a better player….

  15. Woodward to go first he is the stumbling block at Man U we can’t afford to changing coaches year in year out BUY PLAYERS we need major trophies..

  16. Am a united fan from Nigeria. please the board should try make us proud with good signings and make it early so that the coach can have them trained to his style he wants. I long to see the United I enjoyed so much during coach Fergie… Up United.

  17. Easy solution, Bring in Maquire, Savic and Bruno and close the transfer window. Tried of all these million speculations. Edwood you have failed us. Please GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

  18. For sure the real virus of my team Man Utd is Woodward, sack him we fans are tired of him.

  19. Iam a big fan of United,from Namibia,the problem is ED Woodward,he can fire left right and centre,why can he not be fired,Iam show disappointed in him.

  20. I can’t blieve what woodword is doing.let united should apoint directo of spt,an buy clasic players,just c how man city,livpool etc.am from nigeria

  21. Haba !!! why are you so hurry transfer market is still wide ,forget with your rvals buying players .we bought many player when our eyes are closed and we regret am a manchester united since before Sir Alex managed the club. from Kano Nigeria.

  22. we are tired with how the rumours has been speculating.we need actions now.

  23. I’ve been a Man Utd fan since I was 6 years old…the days of Robbo and Whiteside. Woodward and the Glazers are killing this club with their lack of football knowledge…the team is at it’s lowest ebb since I became a fan. OGS is not the best Manager to run things here. Who would choose a team with a relatively unknown and inexperienced manager. De Ligt my foot.

  24. Does Woodward rely want to get trophies or he want to kill the club?

  25. We can’t get it right with ed wood, he knows nothing about football, glazier is worse of it all, until united fall a pit fall n all fans gone, maybe they wake
    Tochi-e. From Nigeria

  26. If Pogba, Lokaku want away why keep them get rid, Solskjaer needs to be back here telling Woodward the players he wants not the other way round. We are MAN UTD and success begins on the pitch not selling shirts.

  27. sincerely man utd isn’t serious at all,,, there’s no need of keeping money in the bank for recognition as the richest club in the world and yet the team is undergoing major problems,,,, purchase quality players who can regain the real utd glory,,,,and again don’t force anyone to stay that’s why the transfer window is open.am a Kenyan man utd fan

  28. We will know by the end of August.In fact let us see by the end of pre-season.
    Woodward will survey the games, as if he understands each game, when in fact he is a pathetic, delusional wannabee footballing guru, who has never played the game.
    There is an argument that Alan Green knows the game better.
    How bad is that?.
    To make matters worse, we have owners who think Martial is Pele and that waster Pogba should never be dropped.
    Worse is that OGS wants to build a team around Pogba when it was his pathetic performances in the final games that cost us a top four finish.
    His head was in Madrid since Zizou spoke to him about coming.
    HIS ATTITUDE SPREAD THROUGH THE TEAM.
    Final questions
    WHY IS THAT WASTER LINGARD STILL AT THE CLUB?.
    2 WHY HAVE WE TURNED DOWN A DYBALA/ OR ICARDI SWAP FOR LUKAKU…..ICARDI’S WIFE IS A LAME EXCUSE….SHE WILL NOT BE PLAYING ON THE PITCH…..MAYBE OFF IT…..JUST KEEP HER AWAY FROM GIGGS…..SIMPLE…AND 80M + BALE+ISCO OR KROOS……FOR THAT WASTER POGBA ….IS WORTH IT…..
    BUT OLE THINKS THAT SUITS REAL BETTER……I AM NOW CONVINCED THAT OGS IS AS THICK AS WOODENHEAD……………
    BUT THE WORST PROBLEM ARE THE OWNERS….WHO BORROWED THE MONEY FROM THE BANK, ON THE STRENGTH OF THE FAN BASE…
    JUST HOW STUPID CAN WE GET……
    OUR MIDFIELD THIS SEASON WILL BE FRED, MATIC, McTOMINAY AND MATA……COMPARE THAT TO L’POOL,CHELSEA,SPURS AND CITY.
    AN ATTACK THAT IS INSIPID AND DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE DEFENCE….
    I AM BANNING MY KIDS,GRANDKIDS FROM BUYING ANYTHING UNITED.
    THE FANS NEED TO TURN THEIR BACKS ON EVERY GAME AND BOO.
    BOYCOTT ALL UTD’S SPONSORS AND START AS SOON AS THEY RETURN

  29. like seriously, man utd president is killing our spirit. take a look at Real Madrid, BARCELONA, PSG. Buying big player to compete for up coming league, but my club is busy with weak and small player. we are richer in the world but last in the league. Buy player that have name and win league for your fans.
    make us happy, we deserve to be happy for ones.
    MICHAEL FROM NIGERIA.

  30. I have supported man u for 60 years they use to go for decent players at certain costs but since the present owners have taken over limited transfers delays to end of seasons with excuses they run out of time to sign players etc its right to say they wont spend because money goes elsewhere they need to be a great team thus spend make them a great team city does

  31. i am Nigerian Man utd fan, man utd forget about nonsenses defenders like Smarlling, Jones, Baily and Young. How many years a gived they opportunity but they are failed? Utd go and sign exprnce dfndrs like Maguire and De light before close transfer window on end this month. If are need a making top four on next season. Is’haq Abdullahi.

  32. I dn’t understand what is happening ,a great club like man utd with good records cnt bring money and buy quality player ,am very tired of man utd ,am a fan from nigeria

  33. Really tired with UTD behaviour on transfer,we are not ready to compete with england top four. Nigerian Fan

  34. if care is not taking… we’ll end up at where our new players previous team used to end to….we need quality players biko

  35. I don’t understand why EWD still in charge , he’s not doing his job well even man u owner’s are not care about what EWD is doing over there, there not even care about there fan’s feelings i don’t blame paul but blames EWD and OWNER’S , fuck them with there evil indeed there. ( i’m donatus by name) nigeria boy.

  36. OLE HAS NO PROBLEM SINCE HE ALSO USES WHAT HE IS GIVEN THEREFORE WOODWARD IS THE ONE KILLING THE CLUB DUE TO HIS RIGIDNESS TO BUY THE PREFERRED PLAYERS WHO SUITS THE TYPE PLAYS OF THE COACH LIKE THE WAY FURGY USE TO DO. NOW WOODWARD GO AND BUY DELIGHT AND BRUNO WITHOUT FAIL POGBA CANOT HELP US BECAUSE HE THINK THE CLUB IS RELYING ON HIM. I AM A MAN UNITED FAN FROM UGANDA

  37. I wonder if this is Man United.Last season it was like and we are here again hoping without a concrete effort from the Executive VC. This is the kind of thing that we criticised in past years.Sometimes I wonder if the VC has the interest of the club in mind.Just imagined the kind of money Man City & Liverpool spend to get their choices players.We in Man United are behaving as if we in group of Everton, west ham etc.In fact I am tired.
    .

  38. Iam a Ugandan man utd fan,,,,if we don’t land bruno, Fernandez,,, I will not watch the first 10 utd games,,,,, for de ligt,,, we can’t have him

  39. I am a Nigerian fan of man united but to be very sincere i lost patience as well as my confidence due to what is going on with man u board in this transfer widow. they have succeeded in pecking around nothing working in this transfer widow, considering our competitors we need to stand on our toes get reasonable deals done if we’re to compete Liver pool and Man city, Bruno Fernandes, De Light, Miliankovic Savic and Maguire will be very good additions to squad if we eye trophy this time to be sincere..

  40. I am a man united fan in south Africa what Woodward is doing is bull shit man united they won’t win any trophies soon because of their stupidity

  41. I’M From Nigeria, Man United Fan, I Have Tire Of E dwonward Help Me Tell Him That I Said He Is The Man United Problem, He Doesing Release Money To Ole To Buy Player, If He Will Not Do That Then Man United Should Sack Him Away.
