Two former Ajax managers have urged Matthijs De Ligt to join Manchester City.
Speculation surrounding the future of De Ligt has dominated the transfer window so far, with a host of European juggernauts said to be interested in securing his services.
Amid the uncertainty surrounding the 19-year-old centre-back’s future, some valuable advice has come his way from two former Ajax managers, viz. Louis van Gaal and Peter Bosz.
Speaking to FOX Sports, Bosz opined: “I think De Ligt fits perfectly with Manchester City. Vincent Kompany is already gone and Nicolas Otamendi is not good enough. Then I would love to see him next to Aymeric Laporte.”
Van Gaal, in total agreement, added: “I think exactly the same. Although De Ligt can go to Barcelona too, because I don’t like their central defenders either.
With both managers endorsing a move to the blue half of Manchester, could the Etihad be the next destination for the teenage sensation?
