Matthijs de Ligt set to join Barcelona from Ajax in the summer

Matthijs de Ligt looks set to leave Ajax for Barcelona this summer, irrespective of interest from English clubs, Sky Sports News understands.

The £65m-rated Netherlands international has been linked with Liverpool and Manchester United after impressing in his side's run to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

But the 19-year-old Ajax captain is understood to be closing on a move to the Nou Camp.

De Ligt plays alongside Liverpool's Virgil van Djik in the Netherlands side but it is believed Jurgen Klopp does not feel he needs another centre-back.

The defender would leave Ajax on a high, having helped them secure a domestic double this season, including their first Eredivisie title since 2014
