Even though Matthijs de Ligt has finished his participation in the UEFA Nations League, he hasn’t reached a decision about his future yet.
The Dutch defender has doubts about whether he should go to Barca where he would have to compete with Gerard Pique, Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti.
People around him have told him that he should go to a team where he knows he can start.
“If you go to United, in three years Barca will pay whatever it costs for you,” they have told him.
Journalist Oriol Domenech went further on Catalunya Radio, saying that the player’s agent Mino Raiola has told Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu that De Ligt can move to Barca later on and for now he wants to play and have minutes.
Barca have an agreement with Ajax for around 75m euros but are waiting on the player’s decision. He says he will go on holiday and take a decision later on.
“I still don’t know what shirt I will wear after such a long season as this, now I just want to relax,” said De Ligt after losing to Portugal in the Nations League final.
