KXIP vs KKR Live Score

De Ligt, who has drawn interest from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in recent weeks, rejected the possibility of joining the Red Devils at the end of the season, the Daily Star reports.

The 19-year-old has had an outstanding season for Ajax.

There is no young player in the world more coveted than Mattijs de Ligt.

First-half goals from Matthijs de Ligt and Hakim Ziyech put the hosts 3-0 up on aggregate after their 1-0 first leg semifinal win in London and seemingly cruising into next month's showpiece in Madrid.

Since completing a deal for Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong in January, the Blaugrana have focused all their attention on De Ligt.

The Catalans have now received a major boost in the race to sign de Ligt, who has rejected Manchester United's advances despite the fact that he has a £250,000-a-week deal on his table.

And the main reason for him being so dismissive is because United are no longer the big sell they used to be.

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.

"We wanted all the focus this week to be on the Champions League semifinals, which Barcelona and Ajax are both involved in", the club source said.

The player though, has embraced the role and led Ajax by example, with the Eredivisie club set to play for a place in the UEFA Champions League final on Wednesday.
