Matthijs de Ligt being chased by Man United as Juventus “to tremble” – Man United News And Transfer News


According to the Italian press, Manchester United are in a race to sign a contract with Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt.

The center-back was one of the hottest real estate in the world in football when he signed Ajax Juve for a staggering € 85 million, at just 19 in 2019.

His contract with the Old Lady runs until 2024, but due to new restrictions on salary caps in Serie A, talks to extend his contract have already been bogged down and there is increasing concern that he will have to be sold for less than € 120 million the dismissal clause in order not to lose him for anything within two years.

According to a new report by Corriere dello Sport“All of Europe is attacking and Juve trembles” in relation to the Dutchman.

“Chelsea, Liverpool, City, United, Real, Psg, Barcelona: everyone wants a Dutchman who doesn’t want to renew.” CDS by Tuttomercatówb reports.

“If you were to say goodbye, the Lady would be in trouble: the defense would have to be completely redesigned.

“It’s the summer of the great center-backs, and the Juventus player is obviously part of this tight championship, so he too can get into a domino effect that is set to change the face of the club’s rear lines. “

The report says Juve is trying to extend their contract with De Ligt for two years, offering a salary equivalent to around £ 130,000 a week.

That’s much less than £ 190,000 of Harry Maguire a week, and especially £ 340,000 of Raphael Varane a week (Source: spotrac.com).

This is certainly a tough competition that United would have faced if the 22-year-old were put up for sale this summer, especially with no Champions League football to offer at Old Trafford.

On the other hand, United are getting closer to contracts with Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong and Ajax’s Antony as new manager Erik ten Hag tries to recreate the formula that has served him so well as the club’s Amsterdam manager.

With Donny van de Beek also at Old Trafford, De Ligt could be drawn to this familiar system and the prospect of joining a Renaissance project of a sleeping giant like United.
