Ajax star Matthijs de Ligt DENIES Barcelona agreement

Though he looks certain to leave the club this summer, the 19-year-old insists he does not know where his future lies.

Barcelona were reported to have struck a deal with De Ligt's representative Mino Raiola in March over terms for the Holland centre-back to move to the Nou Camp in the summer.

Barcelona want to make sure they win the race for his signature, but are aware that the likes of Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are all keen on the Dutchman.

Nevertheless, the final negotiations are yet to be known but De Ligt's inclusion in Barcelona's squad will surely bolster the defense line of the club as the Dutch defender has been phenomenal, despite not reaching to his true potential yet.

Ajax are resigned to losing their skipper, however, such is the allure and affluence of fellow European heavyweights.

Ajax's CEO Edwin van der Sar claimed that the defender will be moving to either country this summer, with the Reds hopeful of landing the teenager ahead of the new season.

Madison Bumgarner's reported no-trade list revealed
The Red Sox don't look like a great fit for Bumgarner considering their deep rotation, but an injury could change things quickly. Because they rejected qualifying offers from their teams, they can't be signed without their new team forfeiting a draft pick.

Matthijs de Ligt admits he may have played his last home game for Ajax.

"So unfortunately I don't think he's going to go to Liverpool".

He told Omnisport in March: "Virgil is a player who has experience in the top leagues".

The former Southampton player has proved to a be a rock and a leader at the heart of Jurgen Klopp's defence and it's partly thanks to him that the club are in the Champions League final and go into the final day of the domestic season still with a Premier League chance.

"Can you imagine him sat beside Van Dijk?"
