Manchester United target Matthijs de Ligt has revealed what kind of club he wants to sign for in the Summer transfer window.
The Matthijs de Ligt transfer stories have been doing the rounds all over the Europe. The 19-year-old is currently the hottest property in the transfer market and everyone wants a piece of the Dutchman.
The Ajax Star started in the Nations League finals against Portugal last night which his team lost 1-0, thanks to a 60th minute goal by Goncalo Guedes.
However, the teenager was again assured and impressive with his performances at the back, just like he has been all season.
After the game had ended, match television cameras captured Ronaldo and De Ligt in conversation on the pitch. Later, de Ligt was inquired about the conversation and he answered honoestly:
“He asked me to come to Juventus,” De Ligt told NOS .
“I was a little shocked by that question, that’s why I laughed. I didn’t understand him at first.”
You know you are a star when Cristiano Ronaldo urges you to join him at the Club!
de Ligt is the target of all the big European heavyweights including Manchester United, Barcelona, Juventus and Liverpool in the summer, but where will the defender be at the start of the next season?
“Now I will go on vacation, I’ll think carefully about what is best for me and then I’ll decide,” De Ligt said of his future.
“For a young player like me, it’s important to go to a club where I can play consistently. That’s the main issue.”
Not qualifying for the Champions League is a big issue for Manchester United that could work against us.
But, if Matthijs de Ligt is looking for regular game time (and some over-the-top wages), you know Manchester United is the best place for him!
