Louis Van Gaal: Matthijs De Ligt Should Go To Barcelona

The 19-year-old centre-back is one of the most sought after talents in Europe with Bayern Munich, Juventus and Barcelona all showing interest.

The defender has always been tipped for a big money move with several of Europe's most prestigious clubs eyeing him.

"There's zero chance Matthijs de Ligt is staying at Ajax", Ten Hag told German publication Suddeutschen Zeitung.

Barcelona see De Ligt as the long-term successor to the ageing Gerard Pique while it is understood the Blaugrana will listen to offers for Samuel Umtiti, who has lost his place to Clement Lenglet.

However, former Manchester United manager Van Gaal has risked the wrath of the Red Devils supporters by encouraging De Ligt to consider a move to FC Barcelona or Manchester City.

"There are too many clubs interested in him".

Ziyech, 26, came close to signing for the Serie A side previous year and believes he could still join former Ajax winger Justin Kluivert at the Giallorossi.

The majority of these arrests were made for breaching Section 14 of the Public Order Act 1986 and obstructing a highway. Primarily, camping will be happening at Marble Arch. "We are here tonight to declare that we do not wish to be at war".

'I think he can play in any league, ' Van Gaal told Marca.

"In Italy they are the masters of defence, so he can best develop there".

Saturday's victory for Ajax put them three points clear of PSV Eindhoven at the top of the standings, although PSV play at home on Sunday against struggling De Graafschap.

"Or I would go to Manchester City".

Meanwhile, Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is expected to sit out the trip to La Liga's bottom club Huesca this weekend as a precaution.

Messi was bleeding heavily after a collision with United's Chris Smalling but tests have showed there is no injury to worry about.
