Manchester United have reportedly been given fresh hope of signing Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax this summer.
The 19-year-old has emerged as one of the most coveted players in world football following a 2018-19 campaign which saw him captain Ajax to a league and cup double as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League.
However, certain elements of the agreement remain a point of contention, most notably the £9m being demanded by agent Mino Raiola as commission.
Juve have no qualms with paying Ajax their €75m (£67m) asking price, but they are reluctant to give Raiola such a hefty slice and football consultant Ian McGarry claims that Raiola has subsequently offered his client to United as an alternative.
The Red Devils are also hesitant to include such a fee for an agent, though, particularly given that their relationship with Raiola has deteriorated during Paul Pogba's attempts to leave the club.body check tags ::
