De Ligt is on the radar of the Red Devils and Barcelona as well as a host of other European giants.
And United Treble hero Stam told PA Sport: "I think he would suit very well over here if they're trying to pick him up.
"I am not sure if that's the truth, of course, because a lot of things have been said and have been written as well.
"But he is a player that absolutely fits in here, but it is up to him as well.
"He's the type of player that a manager, I think, wants to work with."
