TRANSFER INFO

Matthijs de Ligt got his big break last season and has claimed a first team spot at Ajax. This guy is one of the best defenders under the age of 18 and has the potential to develop into one of the best centre-backs in FM17. Lucky for you De Ligt is available for a transfer during the first season and he will cost you around 4-5M. That could be considered as a bargain for a player that will reach the top in most saves.

PROS

De Ligt has all the aspects of a great future centre-back. The most important defensive abilities are all 10 or higher and will continu to grow as he develops himself. He also shows some potential to grow as a Ball playing defender. Which could be very useful when you want to build up the play from the defense.

CONS

Whilst De Ligt is a physical and strong defender, he will need to become quicker in order to fight the big guns in the top leagues. His Acceleration is below par, as his Pace could also be developed. Mentally he will need to make some improvements. So, make sure to get a tutor in the early stages of the game.
