Midfielder Matthijs de Ligt could move to any big man in Europe, but it is certainly not Man United.
M.U is expected to carry out a strong reform of the forces this Summer, and they consider De Ligt to be one of the top candidates to reinforce the already fragile defense.
However, in the latest development, the Dutch midfielder said the Red Devils should take the time to find other players instead of pursuing him. This is like a slam on Man United’s face.
Through Mino Raiola’s representative, De Ligt announced to M.U that he had no intention of signing a five-year contract with the team with a salary of £ 250,000 / week. Raiola said that it was the best treatment De Ligt could earn, but the 19-year-old star shook his head.
A close source of De Ligt said: “Matthijs will become the best defender in the world. He has the option to join any team he wants, but he doesn’t care about MU. They are no longer available. Matthijs knows he is being pursued by many teams because of his increasing value in the transfer market, Matthijs is now one of the most sought after players on the planet. “
According to information experts, the destination De Ligt wants is Barcelona, where he will be next to his partner Frenkie De Jong. The 21-year-old midfielder will play Barca from next season after completing a £ 75 million transfer deal.
Klopp: ‘Liverpool lose will lose in the most beautiful way.’
Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp is confident the home team will play hard against Barcelona even now, they are disadvantaged in terms of force and the result is 0-3 in the semi-final Champions League first leg.
Before the Champions League semi-final match took place tomorrow (May 8), Barca are having a huge advantage thanks to a 3-0 victory on the Nou Camp. Liverpool were in trouble at the moment when Mohamed Salah, Naby Keita, Roberto Firmino were unable to play and midfielder Van Dijk had some problems at his feet. However, Van Dijk can still endure pain to enter the game field. In contrast, coach Klopp can put his faith in reserve players like Xherdan Shaqiri, Daniel Sturridge or Divock Origi when Salah and Firmino are absent.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference, coach Juergen Klopp said: “You need to be perfect to beat Barcelona. We will try to do that. However, we have to do it step by step. First is to create a vibrant and enthusiastic atmosphere before thinking of other things, this will be a real football party.
Klopp and his colleagues have prepared for the match against Barca?
Obviously, having to fight Barca in a 3-0 lead was something we didn’t expect. You can’t play with Barcelona but tell the whole world ‘take a look’ and make a difference in just 10 minutes. It would be great if the score is still 0-0. But now Liverpool will have to try as much as they can. “
Talking about the loss of a series of pillars in this match, Klopp emphasized: “We lost two of the best strikers in the world and have to score 4 goals against Barca in 90 minutes. Things will certainly not be easy but If we have 11 players on the field, we will do our best. It’s great if we can do that. Otherwise, we will probably fail in the best way. “
Who can replace Salah and Firmino in the upcoming hero letter with Barca?
Speaking of Roma’s uprising against Barca in the 2017/18 season (Roma’s 1-4 loss, a 3-0 win again), Klopp frankly admits: “The biggest difference between Roma and Liverpool is they have goals in the away field and we don’t.When you score in the away field, more or less will help you raise a little hope, I don’t want to say more reasons for the Barca players to have more motivation. upcoming match.
I will take this time to talk to my students to come up with the best tactical options for the match. Tomorrow will be Liverpool’s third game in 6 days with Barca, they will definitely make the strongest squad when Valverde has 11 changes at the defeat of Celta Vigo last weekend. It will be difficult to prevent Barcelona from scoring goals tomorrow.
We will do it our way, unable to compare ourselves with Roma or any other team. My players showed a brave fighting face in the first leg and tomorrow will be the same. “
