According to Spanish news outlet, Defensa Central, Mino Raiola has offered his client Matthijs de Ligt to Real Madrid.

In the past few days, reports in England have claimed that Manchester United are interested in signing the 20-year-old centre-back, who only joined Juventus in the summer.

However, Defensa Central is now reporting that Raiola has dropped De Ligt’s name into conversations with Real Madrid. The super-agent recently stated that he wants to take one of his top clients to the Bernabeu in the summer, and that could be the Dutch international.

De Ligt was already a target for Real Madrid, who are on the lookout for an eventual replacement for Sergio Ramos.

The centre-back left Ajax for Juventus in the summer for a fee of €85 million but has been in and out of the Turin side’s starting line-up. He has made 27 appearances so far and earned some rave reviews for his performances recenty.

De Ligt has a contract in Italy until 2024 and it seems very unlikely that Juventus would allow the defender to leave after only one year.
