De Ligt: It would be nice to play with De Jong

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has suggested he could join team-mate Frenkie de Jong in signing for Barcelona.

Both players thrived as Ajax thrilled the football world in their run to the Champions League semi-finals, where Erik ten Hag’s side were denied a place in the final in by Tottenham despite having led 3-0 on aggregate with 45 minutes to play.

“I think he (De Jong) had a great season. He deserves to sign for Barcelona,” De Ligt said.

“Play with him there? It would be good to play with Frenkie at a club, but in these moments I don’t know what will happen.”

Ajax have completed the signing of defender Lisandro Martinez from Defensa y Justicia, which could pave the way for De Ligt’s sale.
