While FC Barcelona seemed to be in pole position two years ago to welcome them, Matthijs de Ligt finally joined Juventus. And that would be a choice made directly by the player…

At the start of the 2019 summer transfer window, the question of Matthijs de Ligt's future had been the subject of a soap opera. On the departure of Ajax Amsterdam , the Dutch defender was announced in the visitors of three clubs with great insistence: PSG , Juventus and FC Barcelona . The Catalan club have even been the favorites for a long time, especially since they had recorded the signing of their friend Frenkie de Jong a few months earlier.. Only here, a little against all expectations, Matthijs de Ligt has finally joined Juventus , a club that he would also like to leave next summer according to the latest echoes appeared in the press.

Matthijs de Ligt refused to join FC Barcelona

And if we are to believe the information unveiled by El Nacional on Monday, it is Matthijs de Ligt himself who would have refused to join FC Barcelona . Indeed, he would have understood at the time that he would not have a starting place at Barça insofar as he knew that Gerard Piqué was an indebted one of the eleven from Barcelona. This is how the Dutchman opted for Juventus . It remains to be seen whether a new opportunity will present itself for FC Barcelona in the future to enlist Matthijs de Ligt , who has never hidden his attraction for the Blaugrana.
