Manchester United have ruled out a move for Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt, according to reports.
Reports in the national press over the weekend had suggested United could move for the £65m-rated Netherlands international this summer.
Apparently, United have withdrawn the interest they held in De Ligt, with many among the Old Trafford hierarchy believing the 19-year-old is set to join Barcelona.
De Ligt has been a regular for Ajax over the past three seasons and captained the club to a league and cup double this campaign.
He was also instrumental in the Dutch side’s run to the Champions League semi-finals – suffering defeat to Tottenham in the last four of the competition.
