£75million star interested in signing for Man United

£75million star interested in signing for Man United

Barcelona have been busy in recent years trying to freshen up their centre backs with Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano leaving in recent years and Gerard Pique now 32.

The teenage centre-back has been impressive for Ajax this season and led his side to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Ajax were eventually KO'ed by Tottenham in the semifinals.

Man United, having failed to qualify for the Champions League, may feel as if the Dutchman is beyond their grasp, but sources close to the player have suggested a move to Manchester could be on the cards.

Manchester United have received a positive boost in their quest to sign Matthijs de Ligt from Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam this summer. "The fact that they won this award is an additional motivation for me to get as much as possible in my career as well", De Ligt said.

De Ligt, of course, is possibly going to Barcelona.

Konta's response was concerted as the second set went with serve before Pliskova had the opportunity to establish a 4-3 lead. "But we saw Novak in Australia, the same focus, the same attitude [to beat Nadal in straight sets in the final]".


An obstacle, according to the Spanish reports, is an agreement over a commission fee for De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola - one of the most notorious agents in world football when it comes to big money transfers.

It's claimed that Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern Munich are willing to pay it.

They will face plenty of competition along the way and Barcelona remain the favourites, but don't write off Liverpool just yet and it seems that negotiations were well underway.

It's now down to the player where he wants to go to.

There is a cup final to be played so I don't know when the announcement will be made but in the next couple of weeks we should know everything about that one.

Liverpool were hoping to pair him with fellow countryman Virgil van Dijk, City need to replace Vincent Kompany and United have been a shambles at the back this season.
