PSG Defensive Target Deals Transfer Blow to Arsenal and Man Utd Amidst Recent Rumors

Paris Saint-Germain was linked to Bayern Munich defender Matthijs de Ligt during the January transfer window. A move for the Dutch defender didn’t materialize, and any pursuit for him in the summer might have received a blow with his recent remarks.

Last month, there was reporting that de Ligt had become frustrated with his situation at Bayer Munich. As a result, clubs such as Arsenal and Manchester United surfaced as potential suitors for the former Juventus standout. 

Since then, de Ligt has solidified his spot as a regular starter and recently told Dutch media outlet Voetbal International that he’s committed to staying at the club for the foreseeable future.

“When I don’t play, then a link is immediately made saying that I would not be happy and would want to leave,” he said. “Of course there have also been matches that I would have liked to play, but I really have no reason to complain.

“I’m still having a great time at Bayern Munich and have been playing again lately. I never let rumours get to my head or drive me crazy because I know what the reality is.”

If de Ligt is a file that PSG still have that they want to pursue this summer, they might have to discard it. The Parisians reportedly want to revamp their backline, with the addition of Lucas Beraldo being the first step. PSG will have an intriguing summer window to see how different their defense looks next season.
