Press reports indicated that Barcelona is seeking to exploit the situation of Bayern Munich’s Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt and place him on its list of priorities for the next summer Mercato.
The Catalan club expressed its interest again after it was interested in the player when he was in the Dutch club Ajax. A Spanish newspaper reported that the player had left the accounts of technical director Thomas Tuchel and was seeking an opportunity to play with another team.
The player also did not hide his dream of playing for Barcelona. Xavi believes that the player is one of the best defenders in the world and signing him would be a resounding blow to all European teams without exception.
Xavi wants the player to be the leader of the back line in the Barcelona team alongside the Uruguayan star Araujo, and together they will form a wonderful duo.
Barcelona is considering assigning the player on loan, with a purchase clause for a not-so-large amount due to the financial crisis that the club has been going through recently.
