Matthijs de Ligt has spoken about his future

Liverpool's and Manchester United's hopes of signing young Netherlands International and Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt have been given a blow as reports suggest a move to FC Barcelona is nearly done.

De Ligt has been brilliant for Ajax in the past few seasons, and he is also their captain despite the very young age.

According to the newspaper, the defender has now agreed figures on a deal with Barcelona. He scored against Juventus in the second-leg to send the Italian giants out of the Champions League.

Mundo explains Barca will still have time to convince De Ligt, but they must hurry because his agent Mino Raiola is interested in accepting other offers so he can "charge more commission".

The second, a de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver which was operated by a different tour company, had four passengers and a pilot on board. Seaplane flights over the Alaskan wilderness are popular with tourists and cruise passengers at this time of the year.

The race to sign Matthijs de Ligt, the hottest young prospect in football, is coming to a boil. There are conversations, but there is still no agreement. United need some serious reinforcements ahead of next after performing dismally at the end of the current season.

Ivan Rakitic is a world class player who has proven to be one of the best midfielders in the past two seasons.

Former Liverpool midfielder, Danny Murphy had said that De Ligt would be an "incredible addition" to Jurgen Klopp's squad. Another central defender Joe Gomez has also been equally impressive for the side along with Virgil.

If, as expected, Barcelona are successful in their pursuit of De Ligt, then the young defender would follow Ajax teammate Frenkie de Jong across to Spain. With Gerard Piqué, Samuel Umtiti and Clément Lenglet already giving the Spanish side plenty of options in the centre of defence, de Ligt may see a future at Anfield, beside fellow countryman Virgil Van Dijk, as a more assured future.
