Some reports are claiming that Manchester United are still in the running for landing Europe’s hottest property Matthjis De Ligt.
United would not expect to be among the favourites to sign one of the most in-demand players in Europe given their terrible Premier League campaign, but those close to De Ligt claim the thought of being the poster boy of the rebuild at Old Trafford does still hold some appeal.
Manchester United are in the phase of a rebuild and De Ligt is just 19. He can bring with him the much needed revamp at the red side of Manchester.
For now it seems Barcelona who have already signed De Ligt’s teammate and Eridiviese player of the season Frenkie De Jong are the favourites to sign the Dutch defender. Manchester City , Juventus and even Atletico Madrid are dark horses in this race.
