Manchester United have reached an agreement with Ajax for Matthijs De Ligt, according to French journalist Julien Laurens.
The 19-year-old is expected to leave the Dutch champions in the summer and has also been linked with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus.
It was thought earlier this month, that De Ligt was on the verge of a move to Juventus, after reports in Italy claimed the teenager had agreed personal terms with the Serie A champions.
Talks between Juve and Ajax over a fee for De Ligt, though, have stalled and that has paved the way for other clubs to come back into the mix, including United.
"There's a chance where Ajax will lose a little bit of patience and say 'hang on a minute, PSG agreed, United agreed.
"In that case we stop talking to Juventus and De Ligt can choose between the clubs that we actually have an agreement in place," Laurens told ESPN.
