Over the last week, there have been contradicting reports about Manchester United’s interest in Matthijs de Ligt from Spain and England.

Multiple reports from the Spanish press suggested the Red Devils are after the centre-back, while the British media suggested the 20-time English champions are of the belief the Netherlands international will join Barcelona.

The Dutch media have remained silent about the 19-year-old so far, until De Telegraaf came up with a report today.

They claim that Paris Saint-Germain have opened the battle for the defender as they will have no problem in paying a reported figure of €85m to secure his services as well as handing a hefty commission to his agent Mino Raiola.

Following the Ligue 1 winners’ latest effort to sign the teenager, the likes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, Manchester City and Real Madrid once again tried to battle it out for De Ligt.

However, PSG appear to have overtaken the Red Devils in signing the Dutchman and it is now said to be a ‘two horse race’ between Thomas Tuchel’s side and Barca for the player’s signature.
