Ever since Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu confirmed his side’s interest in Matthijs de Ligt, there have been repeat reports linking the Ajax defender with a move to Spain.
Sport reported on March 9th that the Blaugrana have a clear advantage in signing the Ajax defender.
Domènech explains the Netherlands international’s family and Ajax’s executives take it for granted the 19-year-old will follow his club and country teammate Frenkie de Jong to the Camp Nou next season.
What seemed like a dream to sign the centre-back is now taking shape to be a reality and the Dutchman is also keen on joining the La Liga winners in the summer.
It’s explained that Ajax would demand €70m to part ways with the teenager, which should be a fair price for a player who has the potential to become a regular for the next decade.
