Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has spoken about the club’s interest in Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.

The Catalan giants are one of the clubs being heavily linked with the 19-year-old Ajax captain, who is reportedly keen on joining his friend and teammate Frenkie de Jong at the Nou Camp.

Quoted by Football Espana, Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu reportedly said on Friday to reporters, “We have followed de Ligt for a while. It’s true he’s a player we like, but Barca also have other important players in the squad.

“We will look at more things from March or April. We’re delighted to watch him play and admire him, but there’s nothing more at the moment.”

Juventus, Bayern Munich and PSG are also being linked with De Ligt.
