De Ligt still 'open' to Manchester United move

De Ligt still interested in Man United move

The fact that Manchester United can not offer De Ligt any Champions League football next season would obviously impact any potential deal, but it might not do so in as large a way as may would believe.

Had it not been for Lucas Moura's late, late victor in the Champions League semi-final last week, Ajax would be on for a treble.

The 19-year-old was Ajax's driving force in a historic 2018/19 campaign during which they won the Eredivisie and came - quite literally - seconds away from reaching their first Champions League final for a generation.

He added on that Barcelona have struck a deal to sign him, Liverpool are proving to be a stumbling block.

De Jong has already played seven times for Holland and notched 45 appearances for Ajax last season, scoring five times.

The report claims the "problem" is Raiola who is asking for an astronomical commission in order to help them sign his client.

The prospect of Van Dijk and De Ligt lining up alongside each other at Anfield is a popular one among supporters, but this is now unlikely.

The defender, linked with huge money moves to Barcelona and Manchester United, showed maturity beyond his age after captaining his side to the league title.

"If you look at the squads: Barcelona, after losing to Liverpool, probably want to strengthen their squad, especially in defence, if you ask me".

Juventus chiefs, although publicly saying they do not want to participate in an auction for the player, have regained interest for De Ligt, a deal which they already considered lost.

Virgil van Dijk was arguably the best player in the Premier League last season and pairing him alongside his fellow countryman could be a masterstroke.
