Manchester United 'refusing to give up on Matthijs de Ligt pursuit'

:Headline: Manchester United 'refusing to give up on Matthijs de Ligt pursuit':
Manchester United reportedly make one final attempt to sign Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt.
By , European Football Editor | 28d

Manchester United will reportedly make one final push to sign Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt ahead of Barcelona in this summer's transfer window.

Barca have long been linked with a move for the 19-year-old and recent reports claimed that the Spanish champions had beaten United and Liverpool to the Netherlands international.

However, according to Cataluyna Radio, United are prepared to pay De Ligt a bigger salary and also match agent Mino Raiola's own demands in an attempt to beat Barca to the centre-back.

The same report has claimed that the 20-time English champions are 'economically more committed' to the deal.

De Ligt captained Ajax to a league and cup double during the 2018-19 campaign, in addition to playing a key role as the Dutch giants reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

United are expected to move for at least one new centre-back this summer after conceding 54 goals during the 2018-19 Premier League season.
