The Netherlands international has been chased by a host of clubs after his scintillating performances in the Eredivisie and the Champions League.
He was a vital part of the team that had a fairytale continental campaign, leading a young team into the semi-finals and within the brink of the final, only to be knocked out by the last kick of the game.
Known for his heading ability, man-marking, effortless positioning and maturity beyond his years, it seems that he has chosen his suitor, but admits that an agreement is far from done.
De Ligt: “There are conversations, but there is still no agreement. With who? The newspapers write, so choose one yourself.”https://t.co/MLvgW81fHq— Anfield HQ (@AnfieldHQ) May 14, 2019
'I don't know yet. There have been conversations, but there is still no agreement,' De Ligt said at the weekend about interest from Barca.
Frenkie de Jong agreed a move to Barcelona in January and it still appears likely that De Ligt will join him at the Nou Camp next season.
"I think these will be de Ligt's final games with Ajax, but I hope he goes out on a high', director of football Edwin van der Sar admitted in the week.
