Barcelona target De Ligt not pressured by summer interests

Ajax captain and dutch center back Matthijs de Ligt is seemingly in no rush to decide his future, despite multiple interests from several European clubs.

The 19-year-old is one of the hottest asset in the encroaching summer transfer window. De Ligt was rumoured to have agreed personal terms with Barcelona, after the signing the teammate Frenkie De Jong in the winter.

However, the center back is still very much in the transfer market, and Ajax have come to terms there is little they can do to stop the obvious from happening, and will let their captain leave once his asking price is met.

Juventus, PSG, Liverpool, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and a few other clubs have all been linked with securing the 19-year-old’s signature. However, Matthijs de Ligt is only focused on his game at the moment, and says the prospect of leaving or staying at Ajax next season doesn’t worry him.

“I play my game, focus on football and we’ll see where I end up,” De Ligt told Esporte Interativo.

“It is not something that worries me.

“I am currently playing for Ajax and the national team, so that is what I’m focussing on. I’m gaining experience and I like it.”

De Ligt opened his international account with a goal against Germany in their 3-2 loss in Euro 2020 qualifiers on Sunday. And at club level, he has scored four goals and provided two assists in 42 fixtures for the club, and is now hoping to progress in the Champions League when the competition reconvenes for a fixture against Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus.
