Barcelona have already secured the signing of Frenkie De Jong from AFC Ajax for next season, and it is looking as though his current teammate could join the Catalans too.
ESPN are reporting that sources have informed them Barcelona are close to securing the services of Matthijs De Ligt for roundabout €80million in the summer.
The saga surrounding the future of De Ligt has been of much news lately, and the defender has remained rather composed through all of it.

The 19-year-old scored in the aggregate victory over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League quarter finals, and has been a brilliant captain for the Dutch side that has impressed one and all this term.
There were multiple offers for De Ligt, but ESPN are claiming that he “only wants to listen to Barcelona” and will make the move permanent soon.
FOX Sports Asia Predicted Rating: 4.5/5 – This move is pretty much done and dusted already it appears, with President Josep Bartomeu all but confirming it an interview with ESPN too. De Ligt will be a future superstar for Barca there is no doubt about it.
