Barcelona close to deal for Ajax star De Ligt

Barcelona are close to signing Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt, reportedly.

The defender has been linked to a move away from the Champions League semi-finalist with Barcelona mooted as the most likely option, following team-mate Frenkie de Jong €75 million move to Camp Nou.

Barca hope to make the announcement in coming days, with Goal previously reporting the starting price for De Ligt ranged between €70-€75 million.

The 19-year-old defender has seen his stock continue to rise this season as he captained an Ajax side that pushed all the way to the Champions League semi-final.
