Report: Man Utd offer five-year contract to Ten Hag’s No.1 target, deal could happen quickly

According to Dutch news outlet De Telegraaf, United have now offered a five-year deal to Bayern Munich defender de Ligt. It’s understood that ten Hag has had several phone calls with the centre-back as he hopes to convince him to make the move to the Premier League.

Italian reporter Fabrizio Romano recently confirmed that Manchester United have been in contact with the representatives of de Ligt. Things appear to be moving fast according to reports in de Ligt’s home country, and there’s no doubt it would be a smart signing for the Red Devils.

De Ligt is comfortable playing from the back and has likely done so since his academy days. All through the Ajax age groups the young players are brought up to play possession-based football, and since starting his senior career, de Ligt has played for sides who like to play a similar style.

It’s no surprise that United are pushing to sign a new defender in the summer transfer window. Casemiro has regularly played in a centre-back role under ten Hag while Raphael Varane has also left the club. Jonny Evans was brought in as emergency cover, but the experienced defender played a lot of football last season.
