After an extraordinary season in which he won two national titles and played in the Champions League semifinal, Matthijs De Ligt is a hot name on the transfer market. The twenty year old defender spoke about his future in an interview with Mundo Deportivo:”I still don’t know what my heart says, I focused only on Ajax and national team. Now during my vacation I can decide about my future. I don’t know when I’ll decide, I’ll take my time”
De Ligt went on:”The most important thing is knowing that the team I go to can highlight me and I can play in many matches. Barcelona has great defenders, but competition doesn’t scare me. It’s normal and logical that at a club like Barça there’s competition. It would be nice to play with Messi, but I have to do what is best for me. I’m still thinking about it, maybe this is not the time”
De Ligt was asked about his chat with Ronaldo on Sunday:”Cristiano asked me to go to Juve? I don’t pay attention to anyone, I’ll be only one to decide my journey”.
