The name of Matthijs of Ligt carries a few years in the radar of the FC Barcelona. His profile always has called the attention of the Barcelona picture and his progression in the Ajax, at the same time that Frenkie of Jong, turned him into a 'dream' for the culés. However, in 2019 it finished signing by the Juventus after Cristiano Ronaldo the 'convinced'.

That has been the reason that always has commented to justify the reason by which Of Ligt did not land in this moment in the Camp Nou, but the newspaper 'SPORT' has desvelado a new version. The player yes would have been interested in getting dressed of Barcelona, but changed of opinion because andn the 'Vecchia Signora' offered him play more than what had been able to in the Barça.

Of agreement to this information, Gerard Hammered dressed of 'peasant' to move away to the international with Holland of the Catalan team. In a trip to the Caribbean, both central coincided in a hotel and the Barcelona "desaconsejó fichar by the Barça alleging that it did not go to have minutes in the Camp Nou", reason by which Of Ligt felt loomed and decided to sign an agreement with the Juventus.

The sources of the newspaper 'SPORT' aim that I Hammered denied this meeting, but so much the player tulip like his agent, Mino Raiola, aim that yes sucedió. Finally, Of Ligt finish in Turín, where has been since, but his intention would be to change of airs in this market of wintry signings.

His representative commented around the middle of the month of December that "think that all know which clubs mention for Matthijs of Ligt as 'next step'. We will see this summer", said to US. Questioned by the teams and if his destination was in England, Mino Raiola aimed that "Premier League? Also it can be the Barcelona, the Real Madrid or Paris Saint-Germain…"

It will be able to ficharlo, then, the Barça?

The Barça is one of his possible signings, but for the moment his traspaso is descartado because it would be a very high investment that ell club can not assume. From this summer, his clause liberatoria will become of 140 'kilos' and does not have the famous 'option' to abandon the Juventus by 75 millions (what paid by him in 2019), as it had informed before.

It is a mount very high to the that the Barça does not have access, mainly because there are not bottoms for this and Of Ligt is not the main priority for the team of the City Condal. Besides, it understands that Eric García and Ronald Araújos will be the leaders to average and long term of the defensive saga and from the club bet to the one hundred by one hundred by both.
