Van Gaal urges Ajax defender De Ligt to consider Man City

Former Ajax coach Louis van Gaal has urged Matthijs de Ligt to move to Manchester City.

The Ajax defender is a target for Barcelona and Juventus.

But Van Gaal told Ziggo Sport: "De Ligt at Juventus? I think De Ligt can play in any competition . In Italy they are the masters of defence, so he can best develop there.

"If I had the chance I would go to Barcelona. They have central defenders who are not too good, so he will play there. Or I would go to Manchester City. I don't think the central defenders are that great either, so he'll play there too."
