Man United fans have taken to Twitter to react to Matthijs De Ligt’s recent comments where he has mentioned wanting a ‘new challenge’.

The Ajax skipper is a much sought after commodity in the transfer market after enjoying a stellar season with the Eredivisie Champions.

So much so, that Manchester United are ready to blow Barcelona out of the water by offering the 19-year-old a mammoth £350,000-a-week contract making him the highest paid teenage footballer in the world.

The likes of Juventus and Paris Saint Germain are also keeping an eye on the developments should his move to either Old Trafford and Camp Nou fall through.

He has now revealed that he is still unsure about his future plans and is yet to chose his next destination.

‘I am very excited about what the nearest future may bring me, but I am also calm, I see it as a challenge, that is the most important thing,’ De Ligt told RTL via Metro

‘There are several options, what I’m doing is seeing which is the best option, it seems logical that one option is better than the other.’

When asked to make a pick between Man United and Barcelona, the 19-year-old gave nothing away:

“Obviously the Premier League is a big competition, in Spain also,” he told ESPN via Marca, revealing his doubts.

“I still do not know anything about where my future is. “First we have to play two games and then after that I’ll see what happens next.”

Man United are desperate to land the Dutchman and United fans have picked on De Ligt’s use of the word “Challenge” as they believe that their club is more of a ‘work in progress’ than the likes of Barcelona who’ve just won their second La Liga in a row.
