Man Utd ‘given hope’ in chase for Ajax star De Ligt despite Barcelona offer



MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly still in with a shout of poaching Matthijs de Ligt from under Barcelona’s noses.
The Dutch international was believed to be heading for the Nou Camp with a deal already wrapped up.

But Catalunya Radio reports Mino Raiola has demanded a larger salary and bigger agent’s fee.
And they added that Old Trafford chiefs are “economically more committed” – piling the pressure on Barca to open their chequebook.
United are desperate to sign a centre-back and De Ligt, 19, is regarded as one of the best prospects in the position.
Raiola could be using their interest as a bargaining chip for his client in order to push up his value.
But United will hope to jump ahead of the Catalan club as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge fan.
Meanwhile, Prem champs City are likely to be on the hunt for Vincent Kompany’s replacement after his decision to leave.

Holland chief Ronald Koeman revealed last year City boss Pep Guardiola was an admirer of De Ligt.
The ace is unlikely to rush the decision over his future and wants to play for Holland in the Nations League before making his decision.
