Ajax’s 19-year-old captain Matthijs de Ligt wants to move to Barcelona and be reunited with former team-mate Frenkie de Jong.
De Ligt is regarded as one of the most promising young centre backs in Europe and would cost the Catalan club £65million with £9m in add-ons, according to Mundo Deportivo.
De Jong is close friends with De Ligt, who has made no attempt to hide his interest in a potential transfer to Barcelona.
‘Anybody would like to play at Barcelona,’ he teased after the match against Heerenveen last Thursday.
Barcelona are currently assessing the feasibility of a possible move, though PSG and Juventus are also interested.
