Matthijs de Ligt TEAMtalk

Matthijs de Ligt’s expected move to Barcelona is not a done deal, according to the Ajax skipper.

De Ligt helped Ajax wrap up the Eredivisie title on Wednesday with a 4-1 win over De Graafschap and the 19-year-old didn’t have time to celebrate before he was asked about his future.

The commanding centre-back has been linked to Liverpool, Manchester United, Juventus and Bayern Munich, but it’s Barcelona that look favourites to land him.

De Ligt is widely expected to join his team-mate Frenkie de Jong at the Camp Nou, but last night he said nothing was decided.

“This is not the time to talk about my future,” he told Fox Sports.

“I don’t know if I will go with Frenkie de Jong [to Barcelona]. I still have to analyse things and see everything. We’ll see what happens.

“I cannot say anything. We’ll see at the end of summer. There is nothing yet.”

Asked about Ajax’s season in which they reached the Champions League semi-final, he added: “It is indescribable. We have been craving this for five years.

“I enjoyed the cup, the competition, the Champions League and especially the team spirit.”
