De Ligt, 19, is a target for some of the biggest clubs in world football this summer after starring with Ajax in the Champions League.

On Saturday night, reports out of Spain claimed that Man United may have stolen pole position in the race to sign de Ligt.

Sources in Holland last night suggested United have moved into pole position after agreeing to outbid any club and meet Mino Raiola’s demands for a £350,000-a-week wage and a huge fixer’s fee.

On Sunday, however, Sky Sports have countered the claims that de Ligt may be Old Trafford bound.

The broadcaster has said that “Manchester United have ruled out a move for Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt.”

BBC, ESPN & Gulliem Balague: De Ligt transfer updates

So what’s going on? Are Man United actually interested in de Ligt or not?

BBC reporter Simon Stone has questioned whether Man United have actually spoken about de Ligt, as suggested by Sky Sports.

While Stone expressed his view that Man United may be being used to “squeeze” more money of Barcelona, the journalist noted that he “wouldn’t expect United to say anything”.

Writing for ESPN, reporter Mark Ogden has also doubted whether Man United will sign de Ligt:

Manchester United expect top summer target Matthijs de Ligt to resist their advances and complete a move to Barcelona, with Old Trafford sources having told ESPN FC they believe the Spanish champions struck an agreement with the Ajax captain two months ago.

As for Spanish football expert Gulliem Balague, he’s acted without surprise to Sky Sports’ report.

Balague has previously reported that the three clubs trying to sign the Dutch teenager are Barcelona, Juventus and Bayern Munich.
