Matthijs de Ligt breaks silence after Man United and Liverpool FC speculation

Matthijs de Ligt breaks silence after Man United and Liverpool FC speculation

Ajax secured their 34th Eredivisie title with a 4-1 win over De Graafschap on Wednesday night.

"A lot of guys have played several games with him".

Ajax came into the final match of the season three points clear of closest rivals PSV Eindhoven with a superior goal difference, after they beat Utrecht 4-1 and the defending champions lost 1-0 at AZ Alkmaar on Sunday. To reach the Champions League semifinal and win the double - that was never a target.

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.

Given that Frenkie de Jong is already a Blaugrana and Matthijs de Ligt will be a guaranteed started at the Camp Nou even at the ripe age of 19 years old could be a factor because of which he gets ready to take a pay cut.

"This is not the time to talk about my future", he told Fox Sports. I still have to analyse things and see everything.

This development is in the wake of the Dutch club's unexpected progress to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. "We'll see what happens", said the centre-back.

Signing de Ligt would have been a great addition to the Liverpool squad but Jurgen Klopp's side already has a world-class defensive department, headed by another Netherlands defender Virgil Van Dijk.

Barça agreed a €75m deal for De Jong in January and are hoping to do the same for De Ligt, according to widespread reports in Spain.

Dusan Tadic then scored twice - goals in an 11th consecutive league game.

Marca reported that the uncertainty surrounding Raiola's situation will likely cause de Ligt's move to be delayed. With the super-agent suspended from being involved in football-related activities for three months, it still remains to be seen who handles his clients during that period.
