One of the best thing that happen to Ajax in the last few years is the progression of Matthijis de Ligt and Frankie de Jong. The two youngsters have been the major reason Ajax have shown great resistance in this season champions league as they qualify for the round of 16.
This has made Ajax legend, John van Loen to describe them as the kind of players top clubs across Europe
Leon stated that de Ligt will be more suitable to the Manchester United way more and should fancy a chance of moving to join the Old Trafford club. Ligt and his teammates performance so far has been compared to that of the Ajax of the mid-1990s that dominated Europe.
Van Loen, a former UEFA Cup winner in 1991-92 and also represented Netherlands at the 1990 World Cup said:
Ajax now face a formidable challenge in the knock-out stages as they look to continue their Champions League adventure.
I think Manchester United is perfect for De Ligt. I hope De Ligt rejects Juventus’ offer – Italian football does not suit him and the Premier league is much better and stronger.”
United have been monitoring the situation with de Ligt and a move could be in the pipeline in the summer.
