Barcelona, Real Madrid, PSG? Matthijs de Ligt Has Made Up His Mind

Matthijs de Ligt

It looks like one of the most scouted and desired players in the world has finally made up his mind regarding where he wants to play starting next season.

Matthijs de Ligt, Europe's latest wonderkid, has been drawing a lot of attention since the start of the UEFA Champions League, turning heads with his top-tier abilities in both sides of the pitch for the exciting and young Ajax team.

The 19-year-old Dutch has shown no signs of slowing back ever since being appointed as the team's captain despite his tender age, and he's also been a regular part of the Netherlands national team next to none other than Liverpool's Virgil Van Dijk.

Given his great ability to score goals as a huge aerial threat as well, it's no surprise to see the youngster at the top of every big club in Europe's list, with Juventus, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Real Madrid all interested in his services.

However, it was FC Barcelona who had the upper hand in his signing for most of the season, as they had already secured the arrival of his friend and teammate Frenkie de Jong, and were also reportedly trying to get him to Camp Nou by signing him before the start of the summer.

Nonetheless, it looks like Paris Saint-Germain is now the frontrunner to acquire his services, according to a report from Gianluca di Marzio, as the French team is willing to meet every single one of his demands and won't spare in expenses just to get him to come to Parc des Princes.

Let's not forget about the fact that de Ligt is represented by the controversial Mino Raiola, who's always going to favor money over every other aspect.

This may seem kind of underwhelming for most people expecting him to sign for the Blaugrana, but PSG is keen to strengthen their rank in order to make a huge splash in this upcoming UEFA Champions League.
