Matthijs de Ligt has reportedly rejected a move to Manchester United

Man Utd De Ligt

But De Ligt's recent form and his prominence in Ajax's run to the Champions League semi-finals has caught the attention of Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Liverpool.

The teenager is believed to favour a move to either Real Madrid or Barcelona once he decides to leave Ajax, with the defender likely to have his choice from Europe's biggest sides.

The interest in the Netherlands global - Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United have all been linked - and Ajax's run in the Champions League have led Raiola to suggest that the previous pact is no longer suitable.

250,000 pounds per week was the offer placed on De Ligt's table who is not prioritising money over proper development now.

But De Ligt informed the Red Devils, whose hopes of Champions League qualification ended with Sunday's 1-1 draw at Huddersfield, that he had no intention of joining them even before their top-four fate was decided.




Nevertheless, it looks like Barcelona will indeed pursue a move for the 19-year-old, with Josep Maria Bartomeu admitting to the club's interest in him.

"Matthijs is going to become the best defender in the world", Daily Star quoted De Ligt's agent, Mino Raiiola as saying. They are not the attractive proposition they once were.

Nicol said: "This depends on De Ligt, whether he's interested in the money or no. He's one of the most in demand stars on the planet".

The Catalans have now received a major boost in the race to sign de Ligt, who has rejected Manchester United's advances despite the fact that he has a £250,000-a-week deal on his table.

Manchester United are set for a busy summer transfer window.
