Manchester United are set to splash out £100m in an attempt to solve their defensive issues, but the funds may still not be enough to land top target Matthijs de Ligt according to the Express.

The Portuguese is desperate to bolster his squad in the January transfer window after a poor start this season, and he is set to receive some serious backing from Ed Woodward.

Sky Sports claims Matthijs de Ligt looks to be one step closer to sealing a move to Juventus in the summer. The 19-year-old Netherlands defender has already met with vice-president Pavel Nedved and Fabio Paratici, the sporting director, putting the Italian side in pole position, just ahead of Barcelona.

Now United will attempt to snare either Milan Skriniar, Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Diego Godin and Jerome Boateng when the transfer window opens this summer.

Reports have suggested a £100m transfer kitty could be on the cards.

It is understood a move to Juventus is now looking increasingly likely for the Dutch star.

La Liga heavyweights Barcelona are also sniffing around but Juventus have the upper hand.

Manchester City have also been monitoring his progress but are well stocked at the back.
