Ajax and Man United have agreed a deal for De Ligt.
Manchester United are edging close to sign Matthijs De Ligt after it was revealed that Ajax and the Premier League club have an agreement on ground.
The Netherlands International is ready for a move away from the Dutch champions in the summer having been linked with almost all of Europe’s elite clubs.
The Dutch side have had talks with Juve over a fee for the 19-year-old stalled giving way for other clubs to contend.
A French journalist Julien Laurens,told ESPN that United are in favor to land talented teenager should a move to Italy collapse.
“There’s a chance where Ajax will lose a little bit of patience and say ‘hang on a minute, PSG agreed, United agreed.
”In that case we stop talking to Juventus and De Ligt can choose between the clubs that we actually have an agreement in place’.”
A fee in the region of £75m would be needed to prise De Ligt away from Ajax this summer, but reports this week suggest the Dutch giants may have increased the asking price.
Ajax are now believed to be demanding £78m, which would eclipse the £75m Liverpool paid to sign Virgil van Dijk last January.
Juve’s bid is said to be £18m short of that valuation, leading to talks over a deal to stall.
