“Negotiations are ongoing” with the player’s entourage, and Manchester United is’leading the race’ for an exceptional signing. What’s going on on the transfer window?

Throughout the current season, the central defender has only started eight league matches due to concerns over his performance and physical condition. Last Saturday, during his club’s loss to Bayer Leverkusen, he found himself on the bench. Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are closely monitoring the situation of this 24-year-old player. With ties to his former coach Erik ten Hag at Ajax, there’s speculation that he could fill the void left by Raphaël Varane at Old Trafford. Paris Saint-Germain, dealing with ongoing issues with Presnel Kimpembe’s fitness, is considering recruiting the Dutch international.


Given the uncertainty surrounding De Ligt’s future, other defenders like Fikayo Tomori of AC Milan have attracted attention from Bundesliga champions. Reports suggest both Manchester United and Arsenal are vying for the services of a Bayern player currently under consideration. While Arsenal has shown interest, Manchester United seems to be leading the pursuit, reportedly willing to pay fifty million euros for De Ligt.


Negotiations between Ten Hag’s representatives and potential suitors are said to be in progress. Christoph Freund, Bayern’s sporting director, has been made aware of De Ligt’s dissatisfaction with his current situation abroad. Despite his visible discontent, there’s acknowledgment of his professionalism and commitment. Georg Holzner, a writer for Kicker, noted De Ligt’s ability to handle the competition with professionalism and grace.
