Ajax Amstedam’s young star, Matthijs De Ligt continues to give his signature target hope in the upcoming 2019 summer transfer market. This hope arose when he claimed there was no agreement with the Spanish La Liga champions, Barcelona.
Indeed the name Matthijs De Ligt has entered the target of many clubs at the start of this season. Not only playing well on the pitch, but the selling value that is so tempting to European elite clubs is the age of Matthijs De Ligt, who is still 19 years old.
Aged still young, but Matthijs De Ligt’s appearance has been proven. This little proof is seen by his election as captain of the Ajax team. This status also makes saliva many European elite clubs such as Manchester United, Juventus, Manchester City, Barcelona.

When European elite clubs want players, it will be difficult for Ajax to hold back the departure of Matthijs De Ligt. Ajax was aware and some time ago had confirmed that the easy star would no longer survive in the next season.
Through the club director, Edwin van der Sar signaled that Matthijs De Ligt would graze with English or Spanish clubs. The name Barcelona only smelled when all the clubs were busy, and responded to the issue of closeness to the squad by Ernesto Valverde.
Matthijs De Ligt denies the existence of closeness and until now it still opens up opportunities for any club to negotiate with its related parties in the transfer process next summer.
“Not yet knowing what will happen. There has been chat, but there is still no agreement,” Matthijs De Ligt answered about the issue of his proximity to Barcelona.
The issue of the closure of Matthijs De Ligt to Camp Nou could not be separated from his teammate Frenkie De Jong who had already docked. As is known, that De Jong has been inaugurated by Barcelona since the winter transfer market in January.
Apart from Barcelona, the latest news mentions if Matthijs De Ligt has an interest in grazing the Premier League along with Liverpool. One key Liverpool might be able to get Matthijs De Ligt is the factor of Virgil van Dijk.
“Virgil is a player who has experience playing in the league. Being able to play with him in the Dutch national team is very useful. That can happen [join Liverpool]. He played for Liverpool, a good club,” Matthijs De Ligt showed a signal of his interest coming to Barcelona.
