But Bayern fans are protesting against his potential sale, with a petition now reaching almost 60,000 signatures for De Ligt to be withdrawn from the transfer-list

Bayern have informed United they can sign the former Ajax captain for €50m.

The petition states that "he is a world-famous defender, probably the best in the squad" and "has a long and promising future ahead of him". The defender also boasts "admirable maturity and mentality", as fans push Bayern to rethink the sale decision.
