Former Holland midfielder Rafael van der Vaart feels Ajax centre back Matthijs de Ligt would be a perfect fit for Bayern Munich and should move to the Bundesligathis summer.

The Dutch international centre back is among the most in-demand players in Europe, with Barcelona at the front of the queue to sign the teenager.

Barca have already agreed a deal for his Ajax team mate Frenkie De Jong, however van der Vaart feels De Ligt should choose Germany over Spain as his next destination.

Van der Vaart told German television channel Sport1: ‘Bayern must get De Ligt, he is absolutely a player for Munich.

‘I would advise him to go there, although I always said that he would be a good match for Juventus.

‘Bayern play in central defence with Niklas Sule, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, but it is not clear if Hummels and Boateng will remain. So, there would be room for De Ligt. The boy is a great talent, has a lot of quality.’

Ajax academy product Van der Vaart made his name in the Bundesliga with Hamburg, before playing Champions League football with Real Madrid and Tottenham.

He feels De Ligt should follow the same pathway, however Barcelona are making their interest in the 19-year-old defender very clear.
