Bayern Defender De Ligt Keen to Join Man Utd

Matthijs de Ligt is keen to move to Manchester United, amid interest from the club, according to Sky in Germany.

United have held initial talks with Bayern Munich to explore the conditions of a potential deal for the Netherlands international.

Erik ten Hag, who coached De Ligt at Ajax, wants the 24-year-old as part of his squad at Old Trafford next season.

Sky in Germany have also reported that Bayern's valuation is €50m (£42.4m), plus add-ons.

United retain an interest in England defender Jarrad Branthwaite but will only go back in for the player if Everton are willing to come down in their asking price.

It's understood Everton do not want, or need, to sell.
