De Ligt to choose PSG over lower Man Utd, Barcelona offers

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt is ready to move to PSG.

The Daily Mail says De Ligt is poised to join PSG with rivals Manchester United and Barcelona failing to come close to matching the French club's offer of £17million-a-year.

De Ligt, 19, has been chased by all of Europe's leading clubs after earning rave reviews in Ajax's run to the Champions League semi-finals but PSG have blown everyone out the water with their mouth-watering salary.

The teenager also sees the French league as a logical next step up after playing in Holland with time on his side before he plays in the Premier League or La Liga.

De Ligt's decision is a blow to United who will have to work hard to make sure they don't suffer another summer transfer window of discontent following complaints last year from Jose Mourinho.
