According to information from ESPN, Manchester United has restarted the acquisition of Dutch star Matthijs De Ligt in the context of the Dutch player not having a happy life at the Juventus club.
Manchester United is ready to rescue Matthijs De Ligt from the “hell” of Turin.
Matthijs De Ligt is the famous name of Ajax after the 2018-2019 season. After 1 year of success, rejecting Manchester United, De Ligt followed the call of the heart and chose Juventus as a destination.
Having received a lot of expectations when moving to Juventus, but the focus of last summer’s big transfer, Matthijs De Ligt was playing very badly. There are some matches that former Ajax stars played very well, but there were also games where he played disaster.
And taking this opportunity, MU is said to have jumped into the game. According to information from ESPN, Man United has restarted the acquisition of the Dutch star and is ready to buy Juventus’ € 75 million-worth contract. If Matthijs De Ligt is available, the Red Man’s defense will become more solid next season.
Recently, the defense system of the Man United Club has been operating quite effectively. In the last 11 unbeaten matches, the Reds have kept clean sheets 9 times. This has no small effort of the pair of central defenders Maguire and Lindelof. And if De Ligt is added to the squad, MU’s defense will certainly be worth watching.
Juventus’ De Ligt cost £ 67.5 million but this figure could not guarantee a starting kick for the Dutch defender. For a long time in Turin, Matthijs De Ligt seemed to be missing and losing his position to the unknown Turkish center-back Merih Demiral.
Coach Sarri once explained that De Ligt needs more time to get used to the environment of Serie A. Sarri’s words make many people wonder when the center-back world coveted to leave behind one person. no name.
The decision-making power is still in Sarri’s hands
Having said that, the decision-making power is still in Sarri’s hands and only insiders can fully understand the matter. And the outsiders only feel sorry for a talent and want to rescue them, that’s currently M.U.
At Manchester United, there are many options at center back after spending £ 80 million on Harry Maguire last summer to play with Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, Axel Tuanzebe or Phil Jones.
However, with Chris Smalling still in Rome and Jones likely to leave Old Trafford in the summer, the “Reds” need new elements and De Ligt is the target.
Man United has been watching the Dutch defender for a long time and is aware of the quality of Matthijs De Ligt. However, M.U wants to be quick, maybe thanks to the representative of “super trigger” Mino Raiola, because it is reported that Barca still has eyes on the 20-year-old center-back when looking for a replacement for Gerard Pique.
In another development, Italian newspaper CalcioNapoli said the Old Trafford team had contacted the representative of Napoli defender Giovanni Di Lorenzo to recruit him in the summer. Notably, the negotiations have been taking place since February.
In the context of Diogo Dalot being too immature, Aaron Wan-Bissaka hardly faced any position competition and it could affect his development. Therefore, Man United wants to create a healthy competition for Wan-Bissaka.
