Matthijs Of Ligt is one of the big aims of the FC Barcelona for this summer. However, the Dutch defence seems to be increasingly far of the Barcelona club and more near of Paris Saint-Germain. There are several reasons by which has retreated the operation

"Perhaps still it is not the moment to go to the Barça, is something that have to think and decide during my holidays, at all more", said Matthijs of Ligt, in a brief interview with Sportive World to which answered this Tuesday. Some words that evidencian doubts about the posture of the player, the one who to day of today follows feeling dizzy the partridge.

After this, several sectors of the press have informed about the unrest that has generated to internal level of the FC Barcelona the posture of a footballer by which the club carries a lot of months wetting and that around the middle of April gave the 'himself, want to' to the culés. It costs to believe, but everything has spoilt to such an extent that to day of today seems an utopia see to Of Ligt of Barcelona.

But, why? What has done him change of opinion? What has the offer of Paris Saint-Germain to have him already half convinced to play in Paris? Some of these questions have answers. Some answers that evidencian that the Dutch has win to go by the easy way in place to pursue a dream.

Economic reason

Paris Saint-Germain offers a wage much more high that the FC Barcelona. The culés would move between the 5 and the 8 'annual kilos (what would situate him in the third echelon salarial of the staff beside Frenkie of Jong), whereas the French would offer 15 annual millions. Of course, the Barça can not equalise to the PSG in this appearance.


Of Ligt, this brilliant head office, this captain of the Ajax that speaks of Cruyff in the celebrations, this destined player to be the best... It does not want to have to litigate for being headline, but it wants that they give it to him chewed. In the team of Thomas Tuchel will be a fixed, whereas in the Barça would have to 'litigate' with Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti. We go, that the Dutch would prefer the easy road, the zone of comfort without effort.

Mino Raiola

What easy had it Frenkie of Jong with Ali Dursun, an agent that of course litigated by a high wage but that respected the will of the player to be Barcelona... But neither Of Ligt is Of Jong neither Mino Raiola is Dursun. The Italian has converted the future of the defence in a serial, a multitudinous auction to look for the offer more golosa economically. Now, Of Ligt will have to decide.
