Report: Barcelona Close To Signing Ajax Wonderkid Matthijs de Ligt

Barcelona are reportedly nearing an agreement with Ajax for captain Matthijs de Ligt, who is said to be convinced to make the move to the Camp Nou.

Matthijs de Ligt, 19, has attracted interest from many of Europe’s biggest clubs as a result of his impressive performances in the Champions League.

Teammate Frenkie de Jong sealed a €75m switch to Barcelona in January, and De Ligt could soon follow.

No agreement has been reached as of yet, but according to ESPN Barcelona are in complete control of the situation, and club officials feel as though the deal is all but done.

They also claim to have been informed by a source that De Ligt is only willing to meet with Barcelona, despite interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester City.

The source added: “As was the case with Frenkie de Jong, Ajax will warn [Barca] if any other clubs make a serious move for [De Ligt].”
