Barca Confirm Interest in Ajax’s De Ligt

Barcelona are weighing up another raid on Ajax – this time for Matthijs de Ligt.

The Catalan giants have already sealed a deal to take the Dutch club’s exciting 21-year-old midfielder Frenkie de Jong to Camp Nou in the summer at a cost of €75 million (£65m/$85m). And Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed interest in De Jong’s Ajax team-mate DeLigt, 19, as well. “His name is on the table,” Bartomeu said in an interview with radio station SER Catalunya via Spanish publication Marca. “Where there is such talent away from Barcelona, we’re always looking at them. “It’s a topic that will be discussed in our sports planning which begins in March, with De Jong we felt we had to move quickly because there were many clubs that wanted him.”
