De Ligt in Liverpool may not happen
The Ajax star Matthijs De Ligt is perhaps the most coveted player in the world right now. The Dutch star has been at the center of many clubs after his brilliant performances this season, with Liverpool being advertised as a potential destination for the Ajax captain.
However, according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, it seems that Barcelona is the one that will eventually sign it. Balague thinks that the Dutch will join Barcelona.
"De Ligt, of course, could go to Barcelona," he said say.
He added that De Ligt's agent, Mino Raiola, has been in talks with Barcelona over the past few weeks and that the Catalans are willing to pay about 70 million euros for the superstar defender.
"There have been meetings between Barcelona and (agent of De Ligt) Mino Raiola in recent weeks and also Barcelona and Ajax.
"They are willing to pay about 70 million euros (61 million pounds), the Ajax is happy about it."
Balague also stated that the final decision lies with the player, as Bayern, PSG and Liverpool all want it. However, Balague believes that Barcelona is in the best position to acquire the services of the Dutch sensation.
"Now it's up to the player where he wants to go. Bayern Munich, PSG and Liverpool wanted it.
"But I feel that he is close – or that is what Barcelona feels, that they are close to taking it.
"C & # 39; is a cup final to play so I do not know when the announcement will be made, but in the next two weeks we should know everything about that."
