MANCHESTER UNITED, Arsenal and Man City have contacted the representatives of Ajax wonderkid Matthijs de Ligt, according to reports.

The Dutch international, 18, is considered one of the best centre-back prospects in world football — and has attracted interest from some of the biggest clubs in the game.

Barcelona, who enjoy a good relationship with the Dutch giants, are keen and have asked to receive any information on potential suitors for De Ligt.

Mundo Deportivo report they have been told that the Premier League trio, as well as Bayern Munich, have contacted the player’s entourage.

The article claims they have been informed of an approach by Ajax legend Barry Hulshoff, who works as an adviser to De Ligt.

Barcelona had considered a move for the defender in the January transfer window once it became apparent Javier Mascherano would be leaving.
