Manchester United are constantly linked with top players and Matthijs de Ligt’s name has been in the focus for quite a long time.
According to multiple reports going on in the media, it seems that the Dutch international could secure a move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
According to Esports RAC1, United have made a mammoth proposal for the Ajax center half and right now, he is very close to moving to the Red Devils.
As far as the figures of the proposal are concerned, Mirror Sport reported that the PL giants have launched a huge bid of £70million and has offered the youngster a deal that would make him earn £350,000-a-week.
The British outlet have mentioned that the Red Devils have moved in pole position ahead of Barca and Man City to sign the highly rated teenage star.
If United can hire someone as good as De Ligt without Champions League football then this would be a huge signing.
The £75million-rated player (Mirror Sport) has the leadership qualities that United badly need in their back-line. He can transform the defense at Old Trafford just like his compatriot Van Dijk has largely improved the back-line at Anfield.
However, there is going to be one massive issue.
It must be taken into consideration that if the deal is completed with the terms mentioned above then De Ligt, who is just 19, would become the club’s highest earner. I think a lot of senior players could get disgruntled and may even look to depart.
At the moment, Chilean flop, Alexis Sanchez, who should be sold, is United’s top earner and he is getting £350,000-a-week. Not to forget, United’s record signing, Pogba, is earning £290,000-a-week and superstar shot stopper, De Gea, is just getting £200,000-a-week (Mirror Sport)
In your view, should United hand De Ligt a deal worth £350,000-a-week to secure his signing?
