United wants to sign the Dutch international defender Matthijs De Ligt from German side Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United is looking for some new players for various positions. Center defender is one of the positions they want to fill in the transfer window. Eric Ten Hag wants to strengthen the back line after their devastating last season in the premier league. De Ligt also wants to join United and is eager to mark his presence at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils is looking for a new defender in the transfer window. Recently, french defender Rafael Varane left Old Trafford upon his contract expiry earlier this month. Apart from that United’s defender Jonny Evan’s future at Old Trafford is also uncertain because of his age. However, according to some reports, talks going on between Jonny Evans and United for a one-year extension in his contract. But, still United wants to bring in a new defender in the summer transfer window.

Last month the Red Devils asked Everton for the availability of their star defender Jarrad Branthwaite and offered 35M for him. But the toffees demanded 80M for the English international. United warned Everton that if they do not reduce the transfer fee, then the Red Devils will consider another defender in the summer. So, there is a possibility of De Ligt joining Manchester United.

Matthijs De Ligt already played under the current Manchester United boss Eric Ten Hag when he was in Ajax. De Ligt was also in Ajax’s Legendary Champions League run to the semi-final in 2019 before losing to Tottenham. Ten Hag already brought players with whom he worked previously, including Antony and Andre Onana. Now, Eric Ten Hag wants to bring De Ligt, who was coached by Ten Hag previously.

De Ligt joined Bayern Munich in 2022 after spending three seasons in Italian side Juventus. Since his joining the Dutch international made 73 appearances for Bayern. Last season he appeared 30 times for the club in all competitions, scored 2 goals, and provided an assist. Although the 24-year-old suffered from injuries last season, still delivered his best performance when matters. He is in the Dutch squad for the ongoing Euro 2024.

Matthijs De Ligt To Manchester United

Although no official offer was made from Manchester United for De Ligt. But things could change very fast in the transfer market. And as De Ligt wants to join United, a move to old Strafford certainly can happen in the future. Now the question occurs whether the Red Devils can bring the 24-year-old in the summer or not. And there is no doubt the dutch international will cost a good amount of money.
