Liverpool, PSG fail with Matthijs de Ligt approach

Liverpool attempted to beat Manchester United to 24-year-old Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt this summer.

According to a report from reputed German journalist Christian Falk, Liverpool and PSG have now failed with an approach to sign Matthijs de Ligt. The 24-year-old is on the radar of Manchester United as well, and the development will come as a major boost for the Red Devils.

The Dutchman has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga club this summer, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. The player has established himself as one of the best defenders in German football, and he has the quality to thrive in the Premier League as well. It is no surprise that PSG and Liverpool were keen on signing him.

Liverpool need to bring in a quality replacement for Joel Matip, who has left the club as a free agent this summer. As far as PSG are concerned, they need more quality and depth in the side, and signing a central defender appears to be a priority for them. They have been linked with Leny Yoro as well.

Manchester United might have an advantage in the transfer race

It will be interesting to see if Manchester United can take advantage of the situation and get the deal done. The 24-year-old has worked under the Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag during their time together at Ajax. The Dutch manager could play a key role in the transfer.

Manchester United will have to find a quality replacement for Raphael Varane, who left the club on a free transfer, and the Dutch international defender seems like the ideal fit for them. The opportunity to move to the Premier League will be an exciting one for the player as well, and he will hope that Manchester United can secure an agreement with Bayern Munich.

The Dutchman has proven himself in the Bundesliga and Serie A, he will look to test himself in English football as well. He has the physical and technical attributes to thrive in the Premier League. Apart from de Ligt’s defensive qualities, his distribution skills would add a new dimension to the Manchester United play.
