Matthijs de Ligt decides on Man Utd transfer following unexpected revelation – Mirror Online

Manchester United is considering a move to Old Trafford for a reunion between the Dutchman and Erik ten Hag, with whom he previously worked at Ajax. The centre-half has faced setbacks in his career, leading the Manchester outfit to potentially acquire him at a lower cost than expected. However, he is currently away at the Euros on international duty and is not expected to come cheap, necessitating the need for the Bavarians to sell.

United is keen on having De Ligt on the right side of a centre-half pairing that could also feature Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite. They are also interested in landing the young English defender if they can secure the necessary funds. The Dutch defender notably scored a decisive goal against Juventus in the quarter-finals.

United’s transfer activities are set to increase with the arrival of sporting director Dan Ashworth. Ten Hag faced defensive challenges last season, partially due to injuries which often left several options sidelined. Raphael Varane’s departure from Manchester after several injury-hit years has also impacted the team.
