De Ligt’s status at Bayern has significantly declined this season, with apparent friction between him and Tuchel, who reportedly isn’t a supporter of the Dutch defender. However, Saturday marked a significant blow for De Ligt as Tuchel opted for Eric Dier over the former Juventus player.

In the match against Bayer Leverkusen, Tuchel deployed a back three with Dier in the central position, flanked by Kim Min-Jae and Dayot Upamecano. Unfortunately, both Bayern and Dier delivered a dismal performance, suffering a 3-0 defeat to Leverkusen and falling five points behind them in the league standings. Throughout the game, De Ligt remained on the bench, experiencing a glaring snub from the manager.

This incident has heightened speculation that De Ligt will be offloaded by Bayern at the conclusion of the season. According to reports from Sky Germany, Bayern has communicated to Manchester United and other interested parties that De Ligt will be available for transfer in the summer.

Manchester United had previously expressed interest in securing a deal during the January transfer window, but Bayern opted to retain the player until the end of the season. With Manchester United in need of reinforcing their defensive line, manager Erik ten Hag, who previously worked with De Ligt at Ajax, holds a strong admiration for the Dutch defender.

During their time together, De Ligt emerged as one of Europe’s most promising young center-backs before his move to Juventus in 2019. However, he failed to fulfill his potential at Juventus, leading to his €80 million transfer to Bayern Munich in 2022. Despite signing a five-year contract that extends until 2027, De Ligt has faced challenges at Bayern, earning him comparisons to ‘Dutch Harry Maguire’ due to occasional errors and a lack of agility.
