Former Red Devil star Jaap Stam has advised Manchester United on the move to sign Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt, according to report.

De Ligt has been on the radar of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona following his tremendous performance this season in the domestic league and the Champions League.

Feyenoord coach Stam told PA Sport: "I think he would suit very well over here if they're trying to pick him up.

"I am not sure if that's the truth, of course, because a lot of things have been said and have been written as well.

"But he is a player that absolutely fits in here, but it is up to him as well.

"He's the type of player that a manager, I think, wants to work with.”

Stam won the treble with Manchester United before he signed for Serie A giant Lazio in 2001.
