Man Utd re-enter Matthijs de Ligt transfer hunt after Juventus defender failed to settle in Italy

MANCHESTER UNITED are back on the trail of Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt.

The Red Devils were keen on the Dutch centre-back, 20, when it became clear he was leaving Ajax last summer.

He opted for a big-money move to Turin but has failed to settle.

And any deal between the clubs could open up the prospect of United’s wantaway midfielder Paul Pogba returning to Juve.

De Ligt cost the Italians £67million but the move has not worked out as they all hoped.

He has started just 15 games this season after struggling with injuries.

De Ligt is represented by Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, whose relationship with United is rocky.

But the possibility of using Pogba as the makeweight and landing the Dutchman on the cheap could be on the cards.

Meanwhile, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his stars to get their WAGs to provide the CROSSES as they train at home during the lockdown.

Ole said: “I’ve been in the garden, with the kids, working on finishing, and the strikers should be working on their finishing.

“Most of the players have got good facilities and decent gardens so, hopefully, their wives and girlfriends will be able to put some passes and crosses in.”
