Which Premier League team could pip Manchester United to sign wonder-kid De Ligt?

Ben Darvill 10 Jun 2019

Could Matthijs De Ligt be on his way to the Premier League next season? 

Matthijs De Ligt may have been left disappointed by the Netherlands woes in the UEFA Nations League after they were beaten by Portugal in the final, but he may not have much time to think about this loss as his future is one of the hottest topics in football today. 

As things stand, Barcelona are the current favourites with bookmaker Betway to pick up the defender at 7/4, although he is also fancied to join reigning-European champions Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s side are 3/1 to sign the dutch defender and make their centre-half partnership an all-Dutch affair, with Virgil van Dijk the other half of the Netherlands’ centre-back pairing. De Ligt’s odds of a move to Anfield have come into 3/1 from 12/1 last week as questions over his future continue to swirl. 

“Virgil van Dijk and Matthijs de Ligt have formed a successful centre back partnership for Holland and there’s growing support in the betting for them do it on the club scene too,” Alan Alger of Betway told BettingPro. 

“We’ve seen a big move on Liverpool signing de Ligt over the weekend, with the 19-year-old now just 3/1 to join the European champions having been as big as 12/1 last week”.

“A non-English move looks an option too with Barcelona the 7/4 favourites to sign the Ajax defender, while PSG have also been backed into 3/1 from 6/1”.

“Manchester United were 9/4 and touted as a likely destination last week, but bets on a move to Old Trafford have cooled and that move is now priced at 4/1”.
