The highly-sought-after Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt has sent everyone into shock by setting his conditions for joining the Red Devils.

It now emerged that the 24-year-old had stated his terms for joining Manchester United infront of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the new partial owners of the club.

“I feel it is important that a club really makes you feel they want to have you on board,” De Ligt recently told in an interview.

“When Bayern Munich came after me, their interest and the way they like to play football really convinced me. I like playing in teams that like to attack, press high, train hard.”

This has come out at a time when transfer rumors have started. Bayern Munich, who confirmed the signing of De Ligt two years ago in what was a big deal, might be willing to sell him if terms are right.

Sources close to the player confirmed that he will leave the German giants for, say Manchester United at this point, as he feels there’s room for further growth with them and he can be really vital at this level.

As such, under the stewardship of manager Erik ten Hag, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has been huge with his strategic vision and support for United’s ambitions infantry, leading the discussion on potential transfers.

The Red Devils has shown much activity in rebuilding a squad that can challenge for both domestic and European trophies.

“We’re committed to building a team that can fight for titles in England and Europe,” ten Hag said.

“Alignment of vision with potential signings, like in the case of Matthijs, is important.

The environment created must be one in which players are able to thrive together for collective success.”

Another thing that has run throughout the reports of his possible move to United is that of its financial implications.

Methods say that the transfer fee will be significantly lower than Bayern Munich’s initial outlay for the defender, thus potentially making it the bargain deal for a player of De Ligt’s standing.

As the discussions develop, it is confident that there will be an agreement beneficial for all parties on both sides of the negotiating table.

United, however, in De Ligt, sees not only a defensive wall at the height of his powers but also a shining player of high-performance standards and attacking football both of which are supposed to be a hallmark of the Old Trafford style.
