Interest from Real Madrid ruining Manchester United’s transfer plans: report

Manchester United’s summer transfer plans may reportedly be ruined by Real Madrid in what can only be considered a blow to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian is said to be chasing Matthijs de Ligt’s signature this summer but he isn’t the only one.

The Dutchman could pretty much have the pick of the bunch in terms of whichever club he wants to join ahead of the next season.

De Ligt’s impressive performances during Ajax’s incredible run to the semi-finals of the Champions League saw him become a huge target of several clubs.

Solskjaer will surely have other options to sign but there’s no doubt the youngster would be anyone’s first-choice.

According to the Mirror, Mundo Deportivo report that Real Madrid have joined the race for Matthijs’ signature due to concerns over Sergio Ramos’ future.

With interest already coming from Barcelona and PSG according to other reports, United are starting to really lose their legs in this race.

Not only does Ole have no Champions League football to offer but his only other advantages of money and guaranteed minutes are no longer exclusive.

PSG can offer plenty of money if they wanted to while Madrid could pretty much guarantee De Ligt match-time alongside Raphael Varane if Ramos does leave.
