It has been made to believe that English Premier League outfit Man United are desperate to secure the signature of Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt in this summer transfer window.

A number of teams have been linked with the young defender as Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.

The 19-year-old had earlier given the hint that he would leave Ajax but failed to state where he would be heading to. He also stressed that he will not be in a rush to make a decision over his future.

However, his family seems to have dropped the bomb as they are speculated his destination by claiming that they are looking for a house in the French capital this week.

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf reported that they spent Wednesday in Paris and were taken to see properties in a vehicle with tinted windows provided by PSG.

This, therefore, means that an agreement might have been reached between both teams knowing that Matthijs de Ligt might not fancy England as he has never been away from home.

An announcement would be awaited to confirm the speculation or not but it is suggested Man United are not willing to give up in the chase of Matthijs de Ligt because of their bid to land a new and quality defender this summer window.
