Man Utd rule out De Ligt move

London, May 26 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 5/26/2019 11:37:31 AM IST

Manchester United have ruled out a move for Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.

Reports in the national press over the weekend had suggested United could move for the £65m-rated Netherlands international this summer.
But it is understood that United have withdrawn the interest they held in De Ligt, with many among the Old Trafford hierarchy believing the 19-year-old is set to join Barcelona.
De Ligt has been a regular for Ajax over the past three seasons and captained the club to a league and cup double this campaign.
He was also instrumental in the Dutch side’s run to the Champions League semi-finals - suffering defeat to Tottenham in the last four of the competition.
On Saturday, Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu confirmed the Spanish club were working on departures from the Nou Camp as well as incoming transfers.
De Ligt’s Ajax and the Netherlands team-mate, Frenkie de Jong, has already agreed to move to Barcelona this summer for an initial £65m.
“Every year new players come in. So far we have confirmed De Jong’s signing and now we will work on bringing in others and moving players on, as is normal every summer,” Bartomeu said.
“Now is not the moment to do anything. There are always new signings, but now is not the moment to talk about it.”
