The young Juventus star has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Matthijs de Ligt’s father-in-law decided to respond to reports linking the Juventus centre-back with a move to Premier League giants Manchester United.
The young Dutchman only sealed a move from Ajax to the Serie A champions last summer for a reported fee of £67.5m as he signed a five-year deal.
It has come as a surprise to fans that the 20-year-old is being linked with United less than 12 months since his big-money transfer to the Italian club.
However, Keje Molenaar has labelled such reports as 'simple rumours'. “These are simple rumours, that’s all, there’s nothing more to say about it,” the former Netherlands international told Italian outlet Tutto Juve. “Matthijs doesn’t regret having chosen Juve at all, he and (partner) Annekee are really enjoying themselves in Turin and maybe they can spend some more time in Italy.” The 61-year-old also said: "Juventus have looked after them perfectly."
