Man Utd confident over CB signing

Man United eye Bayern Munich star

Manchester United are reportedly increasingly confident of clinching the transfer of Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt, who is close to agreeing terms and who is giving his full priority to a move to Old Trafford.

That’s according to journalist Fabrizio Romano on X, with the Italian claiming that talks are ongoing over the structure of this deal.

De Ligt transfer: Would this be a successful signing for Man United?

De Ligt has not had the easiest time at Bayern but he could surely improve this struggling United side, with Erik ten Hag likely to benefit from being reunited with one of his former players.

There’s certainly a gap that needs filling in the MUFC defence after the departure of Raphael Varane, and with both Harry Maguire and Lisandro Martinez struggling with injuries for so much of last season.

Matthijs de Ligt to Manchester United?

De Ligt was once considered one of the best young players in world football, and though things haven’t exactly gone to plan for him since his Ajax days, there’s surely still time for him to turn things around and achieve his full potential.

United, it must be said, don’t have the best track record on that front in recent times, as many big names have joined the club and struggled, with top talents like Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria and Alexis Sanchez among those to go backwards in a red shirt in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.
