Manchester United want Matthijs de Ligt.

“Manchester United see De Ligt, who played under Ten Haag at Ajax for two years between 2017 and 2019, as a prime target,” Gibmi Sport reported on April 18. Rafael Varane has already left, and De Ligt is the preferred choice for a new center back.”

De Ligt is expected to leave Bayern Munich. Florian Plettenberg, a Munich-based journalist, reported six players on the Bavarians’ sale list after the end of the season. De Ligt is one of them. No one expected De Ligt to be sold, as he was a mainstay alongside Eric Dier last season. Plettenberg was the same reporter who got it right when Kim Min-Jae moved to Munich, so the report seems to have a lot of credibility.

United are also in need of a center back. As mentioned by the media, Baran has left the team. This leaves a hole in the center back position, and Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof have been linked with moves. Lindelof is reportedly on his way to Fenerbahce to follow former United manager Jose Mourinho. With the futures of the remaining center backs unclear, United are in desperate need of center back reinforcements.

Initially, United wanted to sign Everton sensation Jared Branswaite and even reached a personal agreement, but Everton’s asking price was too high. Everton demanded a transfer fee of 120 million for the 2002-born defender. United are unwilling to budge. According to David Onstein, a journalist who follows the European transfer market, United”s first offer of 61.5 billion has already been rejected.

With the signing of Branswaite not going as well as expected, United 스포츠토토 have turned their attention to De Ligt. “United are keen to try and make two early signings (including De Ligt), similar to what they did a year ago when they brought in Mason Mount and Andre Onana,” the outlet added, quoting reporter Ben Jacobs. The outlet noted that United also want Jonathan David in addition to De Ligt.

The reason why United are being linked with De Ligt is because of Ten Haag. Ten Haag was at Ajax before taking over at United. He has experience coaching De Ligt at Ajax. Since coming to United, Van Gaal has brought in many of the players he had a good relationship with at Ajax, including Lisandro Martinez, Anthony Martial, and Onana. Ahead of this 토토사이트 추천 season, he insisted on bringing in Mount, who is not from Ajax, and did so.

These are the so-called ‘van Gaal picks’, players who, if they performed well, would not be criticized by fans. Anthony is in danger of going down as one of United’s best ever signings, while Mount, who was highly touted by Van Gaal, has been plagued by injuries and hasn’t been able to play regularly. Martinez had a good season last year, but has missed half of this season due to injury. Onana was also labeled as a ‘greasy hand’ at the start of the season. Nevertheless, Ten Haag is pushing to sign De Ligt.
