Matthijs de Ligt responds to Manchester United speculation

De Ligt yet to decide on his future

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has said that he has yet to decide on his future amid the speculation transfer interest from Manchester United.



The Dutchman has been heavily touted to leave Ajax this summer and reports have indicated that Barcelona and United are among the favourites to secure his signature.

However, speaking to ESPN FC, De Ligt has said that he has yet to decide on his next challenge and there are other competitions than the Premier League and Spanish La Liga.

"Well, the Premier League is a big competition, Spain also," he told ESPN FC. "But you have other competitions, it's not (just) about those two. I still don't know anything about where my future is, so I see how it goes."

The central defender recently won a domestic double with Ajax while also helping the team reach the semi-final of the Champions League where they suffered a shock comeback defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.
