De Ligt gives update on future after Ajax's final home game

Manchester United stopped pursuit of Ajax's De Ligt due to weight concerns - sources

De Ligt: Barcelona and Ajax nearing final agreement - reports

De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola is banned from his profession for three months so can't disrupt the deal further and Barça are in pole position.

Manchester United reportedly turned down an opportunity to sign highly sought after Ajax star Matthijas de Ligt for what can only be perceived as a freaky reason.

The 36-year-old pundit was speaking on BBC and he said that the 26-year-old England worldwide was much better than the 19-year-old Ajax captain.

Even before this season, De Ligt was one of the most highly-rated young players in Europe and was discussed as a possible target by United.

Barcelona want to make sure they win the race for his signature, but are aware that the likes of Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are all keen on the Dutchman.

When asked about the Catalan club's interest, he said: "I don't know yet". De Ligt led the celebrations at full time on Sunday after Ajax took a massive step towards regaining the Dutch league title.

Manchester United gave up their pursuit of Matthijs de Ligt before Ajax's run to the Champions League semifinals because of concerns about his weight, sources have told ESPN FC.

The 19-year-old's Ajax teammate Frenkie de Jong has already agreed to join Barcelona in the summer, and the Spanish giants are desperate to use their links with Ajax to secure the services of de Ligt.

Chief executive Edwin van der Sar reckons his golden goose will move to either the Premier League or La Liga this summer.

"He's been here since he was a child and will end up at a big club".

"So unfortunately I don't think he's going to go to Liverpool".
