Matthijs de Ligt's future takes yet another twist amid Manchester United interest

This could prove to be a pivotal moment in the transfer saga, as De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola continues to push for more for his client, that would put him in an ideal position when it comes to a transfer deal.

According to De Telegraaf, De Ligt's mother and girlfriend were in Paris on Wednesday as they looked at houses in the French capital ahead of a possible move.

The Netherlands global is a hot property this summer and is wanted by a host of top European clubs, including Barcelona and Juventus, but the Ligue 1 champions are close to agreeing terms with Ajax over a transfer fee in excess of €75 million.

With 16 senior worldwide caps to his name, the Ajax captain who led the Eredivisie giants to a league title and the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League has naturally created a off-season bidding war from Europe's elite.

He scored crucial goals in the knock out stages of the Champions League to help Ajax beat Juventus and Spurs away from home.

With a burgeoning reputation, van de Beek has been attracting interest from clubs across Europe with Tottenham possibly eyeing a move for the attacking midfielder.

What does the future hold for van de Beek?

"I think he's got his eyes set on a club like Manchester United or Tottenham Hotspur".

"I've been talking to his agent, and he said if that would materialize it would be something right up his street".
