The British media outlet have mentioned that Man Utd are ready to offer a five year deal to De Ligt if they are able to agree a fee with the Bavarians.

As per, the 24-year-old is even willing to take a pay cut to join the Red Devils. Currently, he is taking home around 15 million euros per season.

However, the 20-time English champions want to pay the player under 12 million euros a season i.e. less than a million euros a month.

Therefore, Man Utd are ready to agree a contract with De Ligt that will make him earn under £50.8m (60 million euros) in the next five years.

As far as the asking fee is concerned, The Mail and claim that Bayern Munich want around £42m for the former Serie A defender.

On the other hand, The Mirror revealed the record Bundesliga champions value the Netherlands international at £55m.

Yesterday, the Oranje defeated Romania 3-0 to book a place in the quarter finals of the European Championships and they will face Turkey on Saturday.

However, De Ligt is yet to make an appearance in the competition. Do you think he is the right choice to replace Varane at Man Utd?
