With the side's defence in tatters, it is only logical that they have been on the lookout for a new central defender but Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt won't be the one joining them.

The 19-year-old has attracted interest from a host of clubs including Liverpool and Barcelona, but he has told United that he is not interested in a transfer to Old Trafford.

Having said that, Todibo is primed to be the player who will succeed Pique, which makes the interest from Barcelona in de Ligt somewhat perplexing. De Ligt can play in any team.

"Matthijs is going to become the best defender in the world", Daily Star quoted De Ligt's agent, Mino Raiiola as saying.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately needs reinforcements this summer and the defence is one area that needs significant strengthening.

Trippier probably shouldn't be marking De Ligt, it's a David vs Goliath mismatch in terms of physicality, but the right-back still took a lot of stick from Tottenham fans after the goal.
