Matthijs De Ligt Likely To Join Barcelona

De Jong vuelve a teñir su calidad de blaugrana

Manchester United desperately need a leader in their defense and Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt has been in the lime light.

Barcelona are also keen on the player and remain favourites for de Ligt's signature in the summer.

The Star further claims that United were even willing to offer the Dutch worldwide a five-year contract worth £250,000-per-week, or £65m over the course of the whole deal. The Red Devils are said to have offered a £60 million bumper deal to sign the 19-year-old defensive sensation.

That would likely be the most financially attractive proposal De Ligt receives from anyone this summer.

Manchester United have conceded the highest number of goals from the top six sides of the Premier League. Yet United's fall from grace on the pitch is impossible to ignore and, for an ambitious De Ligt, the downward trajectory the club is on appears to be trumping everything else.

The Spanish champions have already snapped up his Ajax team-mate Frenkie de Jong, who will be moving to Barcelona over the summer. However they were met with a firm "no" as the Dutch star wants to play in the Champions League.

The Catalans have now received a major boost in the race to sign de Ligt, who has rejected Manchester United's advances despite the fact that he has a £250,000-a-week deal on his table.

That's a shame for Man United.

And Muhren thinks a switch to Barca makes sense and has urged United to concentrate on other targets as they look to turn their fortunes around. Have your say by leaving a comment below.
