The 24-year-old played for the Dutch manager during his time at Ajax before joining Juventus in 2019.

Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg has now claimed that De Ligt wants to join the Red Devils with “immediate effect.”

He added Bayern have been informed about his decision and advanced talks between the clubs but there is no done deal yet.

Only a verbal agreement between United and De Ligt is done about a long-term contract.

De Ligt’s agent Rafaela Pimenta is working on the final details to get a deal sealed but Plettenberg has confirmed a medical has not been booked yet.

The centre-back currently has three years left on the deal he signed when joining Bayern from Juventus in 2022.

But his Euro 2024 journey with Holland ended without making a single appearance after Wednesday night’s 2-1 semi-final defeat against England.

De Ligt moved to the Bavarian giants from Juventus in 2022 for £56million.

But last season he only played 22 Bundesliga games for Bayern Munich amid a season plagued by an inner knee ligament injury.

He has faced intense competition at the German giants, though, alongside Dayot Upamecano, Kim Min-jae and Eric Dier.
