Man United Chief To Sanction Transfer For Young Defender


Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward is ready to sanction major investments on young players including highly rated Ajax Amsterdam centre back Matthijs De Ligt.

This is according to experienced journalist Duncan Castles of The Times.

It was revealed that Ed Woodward is ready to improve the Manchester United squad with the signings of young players like Dutch international player Matthijs De Ligt.

The 19-year-old is one of the most sought-after football talents in Europe with interests from a lot of heavyweights on the continent.

Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain, Barcelona, and Juventus have all been linked with the young defender.

Matthijs De Ligt has been churning out impressive performances for both club and country.

He’s an integral part of the Ajax Amsterdam side that has reached the knockout stage of this season’s Champions League where they’ll face defending champions Real Madrid.

Matthijs De Ligt has helped the Dutch giants to the top two spots on the Dutch Eredivisie table alongside champions PSV Eindhoven.

The young centre back formed a potent centre back partnership with Liverpool star Virgil Van Dijk to help the Netherlands secure a last four spot in the debut season of the UEFA Nations League.

De Ligt and the Netherlands will face England in the last four of the competition next year.
