Matthijs de Ligt is considered to be one of the biggest defensive talents in the world. Captaining Ajax at the age of 18, the young centre-back has already made the shortlists of the world’s biggest clubs. Will he be the strongest defender in Football Manager 2019?

Player Information

Name: Matthijs de Ligt
Nationality: Holland
Age: 18 (12/08/1999)
Height: 188 cm
Weight: 82 kg
Foot: Right
Club: Ajax
Contract: 30/06/2021
Position: Centre-back
Value: £7.25M / €8M
Est. Cost: £28M / €31.75M
Wages p/w: £10.75k / €11.5k

Transfer Information

We are guessing Matthijs de Ligt will be this year’s most bought player in Football Manager. The young centre-back is extremely talented and will cost you less than 30M. We managed to reach an agreement with Ajax for a 28M fee, including a percentage of profit from next sale (what you won’t be doing). This is a true steal for a player with this kind of potential.

Positional information

De Ligt natural position is centre-back, but the young defender can also play as a right defender or a defensive midfielder. However, you should only position him on these positions if you have a big injury crisis. De Ligt will be on his best playing as a centre-back.

Role:
He is best suited for a ball-playing defender role. He has a good set of attributes available to play as one and you should really use him in this role. Obviously he could play as a central defender or a no-nonsense defender, but it would be a shame not to build-up the play from the back if you have this lad in your team.
