Highly rated Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt has been told to sign for Premier League club this summer ahead of Spanish champions Barcelona.

According to trusted Spanish publication Sport, the Dutch international centre back has been told by his advisers to join a club like Manchester United where he can get regular first-team football.
