    Well, you never mentioned them as one of the top clubs that might offer him a starting berth, nor 'that lot' down the road come to that. I think Liverpool will spend heavily again in the summer, in defence and in midfield, and de Ligt would easily play before Loveren. Similarly, whoever is ultimately appointed at OT, funds will be made available to strengthen what has been an identified weakness for some time as well as to signal yet another new era. If, as rumoured, van der Sar is to be their DofF, then he'll presumably make de Ligt one of his first targets. With at least 3-4 suitors, the price will likely be as high as de Jong, perhaps even higher given his leadership credentials.

    I didn't go through the entirety of clubs that are potentially interested, I only mentioned those that have been rumoured and happen to be big clubs - not sure why you concluded I purposefully slighted Liverpool

    Wherever De Ligt ends up, I doubt VDS will have much to do with it

    Liverpool won't go for De Ligt, they've already got Gomez who's a top, top talent. They'll invest big in midfield probably, Aouar linked

    Or Werner perhaps

    Big hurdle for Barcelona in a pursuit for De Ligt will be Raiola, no question. Player sounds like he recognizes this as well:



    Matthijs De Ligt has asked Mino Raiola to treat Barca's offer with affection, that he would like to continue playing with his friend Frenkie de Jong. Juventus, PSG, Bayern and City are the rivals in the transfer of Matthijs De Ligt. The Commission of Raiola will be important, it cannot be forgotten

    if otamendi goes, vinny is in his last year , de ligt would be perfect,3 top cbs with Garcia and sandler as the young upstarts. what's not to like, still think vinny will get another year, but taking sentiment out of it if he keeps getting injured what's the point.

    I haven't seen much of de ligt ,I'm basing my opinion on other opinions on de ligt

    Not surprised he wants to join his mate at Barca if reports are correct at the outrageous amount their paying a 21 year old.

    I think we are being strung along here - I see zero chance of this happening. He’s good but not what we need. That said I think Barcelona will need to sell to make another signing - maybe Courtinho or Dembele. Think they are committed to rebuilding a decaying stadium so economic reality beacons and the local government probably can’t slip them money under the table anymore. That De Jong deal will have cost them over £150m.

    De Ligt pocketed Lewandowski against Bayern in CL, and Mbappe in nations league. He looks a bigger talent than De Jong IMO. 2 years younger as well
