How Man United plan to pull off De Ligt transfer: report

Manchester United are reportedly still attempting to beat Barcelona to the signing of Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt.

The Dutchman is probably on the wish-list of just about every club in Europe after his performances in the Champions League impressed heavily.

The youngster was always a great prospect but his form has shown that he’s now ready for the big stage and can easily lead a team to the top of whatever division they’re in.

Ajax have confirmed De Ligt will leave but the question is just where he will go, particularly as Barcelona’s early status as favourites currently diminishing.

Whoever gets him it’s clear they will have their centre-back position sorted for at least the next decade.

According to the Mirror, Sport report that the Red Devils have ‘significantly improved’ their offer for Matthijs, making them ‘one of the top contenders’ for his signature despite Barcelona’s interest.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current defensive options are Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling; none of whom particularly inspire fear in opposition attackers.

The Swede has impressed during the past season but it’s obvious he needs a better partner so it makes sense the Norwegian has been chasing De Ligt this transfer window.

Tottenham are interested in signing the Barcelona full back Nelson Semedo this summer.

According to Daily Mirror, the defender is available for £30million.

Tottenham have had issues with their right back position all season and Semedo could prove to be a good signing.

The likes of Aurier and Trippier haven’t been at their best this season and Pochettino must look to bring in an upgrade.

Semedo hasn’t been a regular starter for the Catalan giants and he might be tempted to move on if the right opportunity comes his way. He has started just 20 La Liga games for Barcelona this past season.

Spurs can offer him regular football and Champions League action next year.

Mauricio Pochettino is an excellent manager and he will be able to bring out the best in the Portuguese international as well.

In theory, the move makes a lot of sense for all parties involved. It will be interesting to see if the Londoners make their move for Semedo in the coming weeks now.

Some of the Tottenham fans have already taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the links. Here are some of the reactions.
