Transfer: Ajax’s De Ligt rejects Barcelona move with reasons

Matthijs de Ligt is the hottest property in world football at the moment.

PSG are expected to confirm the signing of de Ligt very soon. According to reports, the Dutchman is at the centre of a transfer war between Barcelona, Juventus, and Paris Saint Germain.

Barcelona are potentially wavering in their protracted pursuit of Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt after a report from the local press publicised doubts over his attitude and wage demands compared to global colleague Frenkie de Jong.

MD cites information obtained from people involved in the ongoing negotiations to claim that an arrogant attitude, while beneficial on the pitch against world class opponents, has lead De Ligt to demand guarantees that he will be a regular starter for Barça and be paid more than a player of his young age and limited top level experience would usually earn.

De Ligt's agent, Mino Raiola, is now again free to negotiate with Juventus after a ban imposed by the Italian FA was overturned on Thursday.

He started 33 Eredivisie games en route to Ajax's title win this season and made 11 Champions League outings in the club's run to the semi-finals, where they were eventually beaten in dramatic circumstances by Tottenham. The Blaugrana were even willing to pay de Ligt a yearly salary of €6 Million to do so. However, as it stands, the future of the Ajax captain remains unclear.
