According to Cadena SER, Matthijs de Ligt’s agent Mino Raiola has rejected Barcelona’s final offer and the Ajax defender supports that decision.

Barcelona were not giving up on the 19-year-old and made him a final offer a few weeks ago with president Josep Maria Bartomeu even getting involved. However, Raiola has said no to that offer and de Ligt is happy to follow his agent’s advice.

Barcelona had agreed a fee with Ajax for the defender but their offer to De Ligt is said to be lower than proposals made by PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Barcelona believe that De Ligt is making an economical choice rather than one over playing time because he wanted a higher wage offer than that Frenkie de Jong got.

PSG remains the favourite to sign the centre-back, who will not make a final decision until he returns from holiday.
