The Netherlands are firm: De Licht will play for Barcelona
The transition of a junior defender of Ajax Mateis from Liechtenstein to Barcelona in the summer is certain, news from the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. The publication has been known for its proximity to the Ajax for many years. Instead of publishing the report, he may sell the Barcelona player for an amount that is lower than the other clubs concerned, such as Juventus. The reason for this decision for the Amsterdam Arena people is the best relationship and the links between Ajax and Barcelona in the past.
According to the Transfermarkt site, the 19-year central defender’s cost was 70 million euros, and Ajax earlier in March announced he would sell it for at least 100. Barcelona offered 60 million and players as a package in the De Liecht deal.
According to the Catalan Mundo Deportivo, the footballer will have the last word on the transfer. Juventus, Bayern and Paris Saint-Germain want to rejuvenate in their protective shaft and in practice offer the 19-year-old defender. On Camp Nou, De Licht would compete with Gerard Picke, Clemann Langley, Samuel Yumtiti and Jean-Clair Todibo.
