So does this mean that Matthijs de Ligt to Barcelona is done?
No, it doesn’t.
As made clear on the ‘Club de la Mitjanit’ show, attention has now shifted onto Matthijs de Ligt.
Will the centre-half agree to move to the Camp Nou?
That’s up in the air, as de Ligt recently confirmed that a key consideration in any career move is the guarantee of playing time.
🤔 On target tonight too?

Speaking after his Nations League final loss to Portugal, the Dutch defender told NOS:
I’m going on holidays now. I’m going to think about what’s best for me and then I’ll decide.
It’s important for a young player to play, that’s the only thing I’m sure of.
What about PSG signing Matthijs de Ligt?
