Matthijs de Ligt ‘gives green light to Man United move’

Matthijs de Ligt has reportedly given the green light to a Manchester United move this summer.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that De Ligt has given his approval to the move after direct contacts between his camp and the Red Devils.

It’s also said that personal terms are not expected to be an issue, as his agent Rafaela Pimenta is only negotiating with the Red Devils.

The Bayern Munich star has previously worked with Erik ten Hag when the pair were together at Dutch giants Ajax.

United are now said to be in talks with the Bundesliga side over a deal structure.

United have long been linked with the Dutchman, with reports earlier this week suggesting Ten Hag was ‘seriously considering a move’.

A report from Dutch publication De Telegraaf, claimed that United had sent terms to De Ligt. The former Ajax star has been earmarked as one of United’s top defensive targets this summer, alongside Everton’s Jarrad Branthwaite and Jean-Clair Todibo of Nice.

After taking over at Ajax in 2018, Ten Hag made De Ligt the club’s youngest-ever captain as they went on to win both the Eredivisie and the KNVB Cup in the 2018-19 season.

They also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in the same campaign.

De Ligt joined Juventus that summer, before joining Bayern Munich three years later.
