Man Utd prepared to move to finally sign £245,000-a-week Juventus star


Manchester United were heavily linked with Matthijs de Ligt last year but the central defender opted to move to Juventus. Now, the Dutch international is once again in the focus.

According to ESPN, Man Utd are prepared to move again to finally sign the Netherlands star in the summer transfer window.

The renowned source have mentioned that Solskjaer is looking to lure a center half and beleives that De Ligt would be perfect for the Old Trafford club. It remains to be seen if Juve would like to sell the 20-year-old after just one year but if that is the case, then the Red Devils are ready to move in to get his signing done.

The former Ajax man had a fantastic last term with the Eredivisie side. Under the management of Erik Ten Hag, the youngster captained his team to domestic double.

The Dutch club ousted the likes of Real Madrid and the Bianconeri and were close to reaching the Champions League final but Lucas Moura inspired Tottenham side eliminated them in the semis.

In the current campaign, so far, De Ligt has scored 2 goals in 17 league starts and helped the Old Lady, who are on top of the Serie A table, keep 6 clean sheets. He is one of the highest paid Under-21 players in the world and currently gets around £245,000-a-week (BBC).

Last year, Solskjaer broke the bank to make Harry Maguire the most expensive defender in the world.

The Red Devils have ample quality and depth in their central defense with players like Lindelof and Bailly around as well. Not to forget, Smalling is currently playing on loan for Roma.
