Also, Eric Abidal met Matthijs de Ligt to explain him Barça's project and how they are interested in him
The father of Frenkie de Jong has said that "Barça would be the best option". The European greatest clubs are interested in the Ajax midfielder. However, Barcelona seems to be the best positioned. Also, de Jong's father has added about his son that "he is smart and he will choose his destination on spring. He has 95% options to leave Ajax and Barça would be the best option".
The program 'El Club de la Mitjanit' from the Catalan radio explained that this week Eric Abidal met the centre back Matthijs de Ligt in order to explain him how Barça is interested in him and how de Ligt would fit in the club. Ajax know that some of the best European teams are interested in Matthijs de Ligt and also in the midfielder Frenkie de Jong. However, the team will not auction them, they will sign for the club they want.
For this reason, Barça moved to show how interested are in the club and how the players would fit in. However, Barça know that the signing of both players will not be cheap. It is expected to pay, at least, 140 million for de Jong and de Ligt. For FCBarcelona, the most important is the signing of the centre back, but the reports about the midfielder are as positive that the club want to make an effort.
Still talking about the Dutch market, Barça contacted with the goalkeeper André Onana because of the possibility that Jasper Cillessen could leave. Onana played in Barcelona for three years after the signed for Ajax in 2015. After Cillessen signed for Barcelona in 2016, Onana became the first goalkeeper in Amsterdam. The Cameroonian is represented by a Catalan manager, the same as Héctor Bellerín. Although the great relation between Barça and Onana, the goalkeeper does not want to sign for staying in the bench.
