Former Manchester United Star Dimitar Berbatov thinks that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should make Center Back signing a top priority in the summer transfer window.
The Red Devils are looking to overhaul their squad with a plethora of new signings while shipping off the dead weights in the next few months.
And former Striker Berbatov was inquired as to what the priority position should be for Ole and Ed Woodward.
“Ole needs a centre-back who can control the ball, pass into midfield and not be intimidated — just like Van Dijk.
“If I am a striker with Van Dijk in my team, I know it will be OK. They need someone like that.
“For a player so young, De Ligt’s performances are incredible.
“He’s mature, comfortable on the ball, and he is not bothered who he plays against — Ronaldo or whoever.
Dimitar Berbatov went on to list the qualities of De Ligt who is wanted by every top football club in the world right now:
“He doesn’t care, he just plays his own game.
“He moves with grace and doesn’t panic on the ball. He has everything you want from a defender.
“That guy will be an unbelievable player. He’s a great talent and I hope United go for him in the summer and get him.”
Matthijs De Ligt is an exceptional player already and the Dutch International is only gonna improve from here which makes him even more of a frightening talent.
However, with Clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid involved in the race, it’s no guarantee that we would be able to sign him. But, we can definitely try, can’t we?
