Ten Hag: 0% chance that De Ligt stays

Ajax will be in the semis after a surprise win over Juventus

Ajax will be in the semis after a surprise win over Juventus

The 19-year-old Ajax club captain has been highly sought-after following the confirmation of team-mate Frenkie de Jong's transfer to Barcelona at the end of the season.

The defender has always been tipped for a big money move with several of Europe's most prestigious clubs eyeing him.

Louis van Gaal gave his opinion on where Matthijs de Ligt should move this summer.

"There are too many clubs interested in him". If I had the chance I would go to Barcelona.

And the Catalan giants are favourites for the central defender's signature as well, though other elite clubs such as Bayern, Manchester City and Juventus have all shown an interest.

Ziyech, 26, came close to signing for the Serie A side past year and believes he could still join former Ajax winger Justin Kluivert at the Giallorossi. "I think De Ligt can play in any competition", Van Gaal told Ziggo Sport, as quoted by Metro.

He said more than 30 officers were involved in the response to the shootings and a sweep did not find any other victims. A woman at one of the scenes told Castanet there had been a shooting during which her husband was killed.

Barça have apparently made it clear to De Ligt that they view him as an important signing for their long-term plans, and the contract on offer to the defender promises further performance-based financial bonuses.

"Or I would go to Manchester City".

Once Barcelona have formal agreements on the contract from both De Ligt and Raiola, the club will then enter negotiations with Ajax which, assuming they already have a deal with the player, would seemingly be relatively straightforward.

Meanwhile, Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is expected to sit out the trip to La Liga's bottom club Huesca this weekend as a precaution.

But with the second leg against United to come on Tuesday, boss Ernesto Valverde is likely to rest his main man.
