Barcelona Hope to Confirm Matthijs de Ligt Signing Once Ajax Win Eredivisie

De Ligt Continues To Ponder Where His Future Lies

Recent reports claimed that Barcelona are closing in on a move for the aforementioned De Ligt who has impressed a great deal for Ajax Amsterdam this season.

Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has finally spoken out about his future amid interest from top clubs around Europe.

That allowed Ajax to take a three-point advantage, plus a massive plus 14 goal difference, into Wednesday's match.

The defender is on course to lift the Eredivisie title after his side defeated FC Utrecht 4-1 at the weekend, leaving them three points clear of second place with just one game to go.

Their thrilling European adventure, which also saw them dump out Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus, came to an end in gut-wrenching style last week when Lucas Moura's 96th-minute strike for Spurs saw Ajax throw away a 3-0 aggregate lead and miss out on a trip to Madrid on away goals.

It represents Ajax's first title since 2014 and a record-extending 34th overall as they completed the double having already won the KNVB Cup earlier this month.

Ajax's superb performances have not gone unnoticed and it has been reported that Chelsea are interested in getting Ten Hag as their new manager. I always think: "I want to be able to work comfortably somewhere", Ten Hag told reporters of his future.

Ajax restored their advantage before the interval as Hakim Ziyech stormed into the penalty area and cut the ball back to leave Argentina defender Nicolas Tagliafico with a tap in.

"Next season it is going to be a lot more hard than this season". To reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals and win the double - that was never a target. This season belongs among the best in the history of the club. But in Europe? I can not say right now.

"To become league champions again will be our ambition".
