Sky Sport Germany reports that Manchester United is keeping a close eye on Matthijs de Ligt, the Dutch central defender of Bayern Munich. The 22-year-old, who is not happy with his role as a backup at the German club, could leave Bavaria next summer.
Erik ten Hag, the Manchester manager, knows de Ligt well from having coached him at Ajax Amsterdam. He would like to bring him to Old Trafford to strengthen his defense, which is one of the weakest in the Premier League this season.
De Ligt is a very talented player. He is already an international for the Netherlands and was one of the best defenders in the Champions League during his time at Ajax. He is quick, strong in the air, and has good vision of the game.
He could be a major asset for Manchester United, which is looking to rebuild. The Red Devils need a world-class central defender to stabilize their defense and return to European places.
De Ligt would be an ideal signing for Manchester United. He is young, talented, and already has experience at the top level. He could be the leader of the Red Devils’ defense for years to come.
