Erik ten Hag is reportedly keen on bringing Matthijs de Ligt to Manchester United to strengthen the team’s defense.
The Dutch defender, currently at Bayern Munich, is seen as a potential target for United as they look to bolster their backline.
Ten Hag previously worked with De Ligt at Ajax, where the defender made significant contributions and was even made captain at a young age.
De Ligt’s successful stint at Ajax, where they achieved domestic success and reached the Champions League semi-finals, has caught the attention of his former coach.
If Ten Hag remains at Manchester United beyond the current season, De Ligt could become a primary target for the club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
At Bayern Munich, De Ligt has faced challenges securing regular playing time under Thomas Tuchel, partly due to a knee injury.
This situation has led to speculation about his future, with potential interest from Arsenal as well.
However, any move for De Ligt is likely to depend on Bayern’s pursuit of Ronald Araujo from Barcelona, who is also on Manchester United’s radar.
