Barcelona "close" to signing De Ligt, claims journalist

Barcelona

Another of Ajax's highlights would no doubt be that of reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League, seeing off the likes of Real Madrid and Juventus along the way.

Ajax captain Matthjis de Ligt remains open to the prospect of joining Manchester United this summer, according to the Telegraph.

However, the report claims those close to the 19-year-old say a move to United and the opportunity to be the poster boy for their rebuild does appeal to him.

The former Manchester United defender who earned 67 caps with the Netherlands, believes his fellow countryman would be a ideal signing for either ourselves or Ernesto Valverde's Barcelona.

Earlier this month, Cillessen manifested his intentions to leave Barca for more playing time, thereby drawing interest from Portuguese club Benfica.

According to The Telegraph, the Red Devils are expected to strengthen their backline during their summer and they could possibly get their hands on one of their prime targets in De Ligt. It will be great to see how he performs against better players in a better league, not just every few weeks, but every weekend.

"Same goes for Liverpool".

The defence might have played a big part in it, yet the Spanish goalkeeper showed signs of vulnerability at times with some costly errors. I think he has enough quality to do so.

He said: "Problems with renewing his contract have got to a stage where Ed Woodward has informed the player that he will not meet the financial terms he's asking for to become the best paid player at the club, on the same level as Alexis Sanchez". Man United, having failed to qualify for the Champions League, may feel as if the Dutchman is beyond their grasp, but sources close to the player have suggested a move to Manchester could be on the cards. "In that case, money won't make a difference".
