Feyenoord coach Stam: De Ligt perfect fit for Man Utd

Feyenoord coach Jaap Stam can see Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt moving to Manchester United.

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."
