Matthijs de Ligt was the first player Barça asked for when he started negotiating with Juventus. The Italians refused, but the Catalans could have put the name of the defender on the table again
Matthijs Of Ligt was one of the big aims of the FC Barcelona the past summer. The Dutch was months sounding like reinforcement culé and during quite a lot of time was very near. The Ajax, fellow club, was had to leave him go out by some 75-80 million euros, whereas he was almost convinced to dress of blaugrana. But then it appeared in scene Mino Raiola, his representative, and the operation began to wobble.
The known Italian agent asked a too elevated wage for his customer and a premium by signing that in the Barça never thought in accepting. The barcelonistas retreated when they saw the demands of Raiola and then took forces the Juventus of Turín. The bianconeros yes paid what the representative wanted to and at the end finished carrying the cat to the water. Of Ligt fichó by the 'Vecchia Signora' in return of 85,5 million euros for the Ajax and some 8 for his pocket, refusing like this the proposal culé.
But the Italian adventure of the Dutch is not going like him expected and says that there is some option that it decide to abandon Turín. Precisely therefore, the Catalans asked after he when they began to negotiate with the Juventus of Turín the barter of diverse footballers. The answer of the juventinos was negative and seemed that the Barça had decided to forget of the central and centre in other options like Miralem Pjanic.
Nevertheless, in England have woken up this Wednesday with a possible bomb in relation to this interest on the defender. In the 'Daily Mail' ensure that the Barcelona would have presented an offer to the Juventus to carry to Of Ligt. This proposal would be of 73 million euros, something underneath of what paid the Italians by him does some months. This information it would be necessary to take it with pinzas, since has too many peros.
The signing of Of Ligt is very complicated
The Barça goes to have important losses by fault of the coronavirus, by what costs to think that have more than 70 'kilos' to invest them in the central. Lautaro Martínez is the big aim for the season that comes and from all the means comment that they will try put those that more better players in the operation for abaratar his cost. The Catalans do not have of a lot of money to spend and the big majority goes to go allocated for the contracting of the Argentinian.
Also it is necessary to take into account that the Juve has decided already the players that goes to put up for sale in summer. Miralem Pjanic, Mattia Of Sciglio, Federico Bernardeschi or Rodrigo Bentancur have sounded like possible exits. Instead, the intention of the bianconeros would be to remain with the Dutch, since they follow trusting he like key piece for his future. Only the step of the weeks will say if the ex 'ajacied' is or no in the market.
