‘De Ligt would be perfect Kompany replacement’

Vincent Kompany has left Manchester City after winning another Premier League title as their captain and former City forward Shaun Wright-Phillips knows which player the club should pursue to bolster the central defence.

“I wouldn’t say there are big names coming in but the club definitely needs some big characters because Vinny Kompany is a big character both on and off the pitch. He is going to be almost impossible to replace. But if you can start off by replacing him on the field then I’d love to see De Ligt at Manchester City. After watching him play this year and especially being so young I think him and [Aymeric] Laporte would be a great team”, he said 888Sport.

“People will try and take advantage because it’s Manchester City but considering what he’s worth and capable of City should keep going for him. I’m not saying £180m or something stupid like that but I’d like to see him there because he’s such a good player.”
