Ajax boss: Matthijs de Ligt to Bayern or Barcelona

Ajax boss Erik ten Hag believes there is “zero chance” club captain Matthijs de Ligt will stay at the club: “he will join Bayern or Barcelona.”

The 19-year-old has been the captain of the Amsterdam-based club for over a year and has starred for club and country.

Widely regarded as one of the best upcoming talents in world football, the central defender is set to command a €75m fee from Ajax.

“There's zero chance Matthijs de Ligt is staying at Ajax,” ten Hag told Suddeutschen Zeitung, as cited by ESPN FC.

“There are so many clubs interested in him. He will leave us this summer, but I don't know whether he'll join Bayern or Barcelona.”

Juventus are the other club who have been strongly linked to a summer move for the Dutch international.
