From the year 2018, the FC Barcelona​ fixed his look in the Ajax to reinforce . The team of Ámsterdam, to the orders of Erik have Hag, has a philosophy of game very similar to the Barcelona, reason by which his emergent stars began to wake up the interest of the sportive direction of the Camp Nou and, specifically, in two names.

The big priority always was Frenkie of Jong, that to day of today already is showing the obsession of the directive and the technical office for bringing it, but Matthijs of Ligt also generated a big interest in the club culé. Nevertheless, the blaugrana could not convince to the defence like himself had done with the mediocentro of Arkel, by what finally the ex captain 'ajacied' finish in the Juventus.

According to the informations published by Sportive World, the true problem in this sense was the agent of the player, Mino Raiola. The Italian has to several players to which represents as they can be Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Balotelli... And the common denominator of all they is that they always finish in the team that offers them more money, although afterwards they do not go out so benefited in the sportive plane.

In that moment, Of Ligt already had moved to the Barcelona his preference by the Camp Nou and from the Catalan club asked him that, if finally it decided go to Italy, communicated it before in case it could equalise the proposal.

"For me the money is not problem, my dream is the Barça and want to go", said to the culés, after knowing the requirements of Raiola. Finally, the agent of the footballer accepted of word not asking a so high commission, but asked to postpone the negotiations during a month, curiously, in a period in which it had been inhabilitado in Italy. A strategy to win time.

"No final" of De Ligt

The unpleasant surprise for the Barça was in a meeting with Of Ligt happened this period in which, surprisingly, the player had changed his speech moving him to the Catalan entity that did not have sense valued by them and that his election finally was the Juventus. Like curious data, to day of today, not even with Chiellini lesionado of long length the Dutch has been able to win the titularity.
