The FC Barcelona does a lot of months that is interested in the signing of Matthijs of Ligt, a defence of 19 years that has achieved to turn into the big leader of the defence of an Ajax that has won the doublet in Holland and that has arrived to semifinals of the Champions League, remaining very near of the final.
In spite of that around the middle of the month of April the operation seemed practically enclosed, now the defence 'ajacied' has increased his requirements salariales and sportive, asking a higher wage of what offered him in his day in the Camp Nou and wanting to ensure that it goes to be headline in the defensive line.

Only it had played a ten of parties with the first team of the Toulouse, but to his 19 years left clear that has potential.

In case that Of Ligt do not arrive, the culés will not look for another signing to compensate it, but they will give him to Todibo the possibility to be the fourth head office, to go accustoming to the team and to the style of game.
This season has played some unimportant parties in LaLiga Santander and has left good feelings, although it also has left clear that was missing him rhythm of competition and a complete physical preparation. In this case, it would begin the pre-season with the first team and would arrive more filmed, already like player of the first team to full effects.
Todibo, physicist and polivalencia
Jean-Clair Todibo is an able footballer to occupy more than a position. In the first team of the Toulouse began to stand out like central defence, taking out split of his big corpulencia and of his technician with the balloon in the feet. However, his natural position is the one of mediocentro defensive, by what also would be an alternative for Ernesto Valverde.
