Matthijs de Ligt has been in the headlines once again because of his latest transfer debacle. Prior to his move to Juventus, De Ligt was one of the most sought after teenagers around, captaining Ajax to an Eredivisie title and Champions League semi-final at just 19.
Now, after a topsy-turvy year in Italy, the Dutch star has once again got the world talking about a potential move with his recent interview with Voetbal International. Indeed, it may not have worked out as much as De Ligt would have liked at Juventus, but at 20 years old, he is still one of the most wanted defenders in football.
The centre-back told Voetbal International: "A lot has been said and written and it seemed that I made a decision overnight, but of course that wasn't the case.
"It was very annoying that so much was speculated. I tried to shut myself off, although with all the social media that is never entirely possible."
He added: "I have been laughing at such messages for a long time, but it also makes you tired at some point. There was something every day. Suddenly even my father was too fat, which is why a club [United] would not want me."
Now, we take a look at if he could join Manchester United and all the De Ligt transfer odds.
