Matthijs de Ligt's future is on the verge of being decided

It is suggested that Bout was aware that De Ligt's father Frank was "significantly overweight", and subsequently held concerns that similar issues could affect the 19-year-old's pace and power in the long term.

Speaking in the BBC studio, Jenas explained: "He is a top player".

"He is clearly a player with a bright future ahead of him and is only nineteen years old".

"I don't see de Ligt doing anything Maguire can't do".

De Ligt led the celebrations at full time on Sunday after Ajax took a massive step towards regaining the Dutch league title.

"I think these will be de Ligt's final games with Ajax, but I hope he goes out on a high", director of football Edwin van der Sar admitted in the week. "The only difference is the age".
