Barcelona have agreed on a fee with Ajax to sign their captain, Matthijs de Ligt, in this summer’s transfer window.
This claim was made by respected ex-Spanish footballer and Sport analyst, Oriol Domenech.
Domenech said this on Monday night while appearing on Spanish TV show, Club de la Mitjanit.
“The number is already agreed upon and that is what Barca will pay if De Ligt decides to come,” Domenech said.
“The agreement between the two clubs is total.
“The fee Barcelona are set to hand over for De Ligt if he chooses to sign for them is about £67m (€75m).”
“If he comes to Barca, I doubt that they will announce it in June.
“They will announce it in July.”
De Ligt is the most wanted player in Europe after an outstanding season with Ajax.
The 19-year-old had been linked with a move to Liverpool, Manchester United, Juventus and Barcelona in recent weeks.
