Manchester United are hoping to complete a deal for 24-year-old Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt this summer.

Matthijs de Ligt has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga, and a move to the Premier League is on the cards for him.

The 24-year-old Bundesliga winner will be expected to former quality partnership with Lisandro Martinez at the heart of the Manchester United defence next season.
