According to Diario Sport, Barcelona are confident of quickly sealing a deal for Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt after Bayern Munich cooled their interest.

The Spanish newspaper is reporting that Barcelona’s move for De Ligt is advancing leaps and bounds and they are hopeful over sealing a move quickly.

Bayern Munich were said to be the main challengers but they have switched their attentions to De Ligt’s teammate Hakim Ziyech.

Barcelona expect a late offer from Juventus but remains confident that a deal can be wrapped up, possibly by the time Ajax and the Italian side meet in the Champions League next week.

De Ligt’s preference is a move to the Nou Camp where he will play alongside Frenkie de Jong.
