Matthijs De Ligt Could ‘Easily Play For One Of The Six Best Teams In The World’

Matthijs De Ligt Could ‘Easily Play For One Of The Six Best Teams In The World’

Matthijs de Ligt is all but certain to leave Ajax after the club's director of football, Marc Overmars, claimed that it would be difficult to fend off interest for the player.

The 19-year-old Dutch centre-back has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, following potentially in the same footsteps as teammate Frenkie de Jong.

Overmars praised de Ligt, who has also been the target of Liverpool and Manchester City, for his ability on the pitch, saying that he could play for six of the best teams in the world (although he didn't specify which ones).

However, Ajax's director of football admitted that the Netherlands international would be the player most likely to leave the club.

"I think so. For me, de Ligt can play easily [in] any of the six best teams in the world right now," he told Diario AS.

"He has the power, the mentality, the heart. If I worked at another club, I would like to sign him immediately.

The Ajax star started in his side's 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu in the Champions League, with teammate Dušan Tadić putting on a show-stealing performance.
