Bigger clubs than Manchester United are chasing De Ligt this summer, but that shouldn’t put them off.

The young Dutch defender would not only vastly improve their defence now, but he could be the heart of their team for the next decade or more.

Those things are worth paying big money for. If United need to pay extra then they should be willing to do so.

De Ligt is actually represented by Mino Raiola, who has a good relationship with United. They should use that to their advantage in this race.
