Matthijs de Ligt's father dismisses reports linking the Juventus defender with a move to Manchester United.

Matthijs de Ligt's father has dismissed reports linking the Juventus defender with a move to Manchester United.

The 20-year-old has chalked up 20 league appearances under Maurizio Sarri since arriving from Ajax last summer but has struggled with injuries this term.

As a result, United have supposedly reignited their interest in the Netherlands international, and recent reports have suggested that the defender's agent Mino Raiola has offered De Ligt to Real Madrid.

However, speaking to Tuttojove, De Ligt's father has insisted that his son is happy in Turin, saying: "It's just rumours, that's all, there's nothing more to say about it.

"Matthijs doesn't regret having chosen Juve at all, he and Annekee [Molenaar] are really enjoying themselves in Turin and maybe they can spend some more time in Italy."

De Ligt has netted twice in 27 appearances for the Old Lady during the 2019-20 campaign.
