The Catalan giants already started preparations for next by securing the services of De Jong from Ajax Amsterdam.

Barca Josep Maria Bartomeu has now confirmed that the club have been monitoring De Jong's club and country teammate Matthijs de Ligt.

“We have followed de Ligt for a while. It's true he's a player we like, but Barca also have other important players in the squad,” Bartomeu told reporters, according to Football Espana.

“We will look at more things from March or April. We're delighted to watch him play and admire him, but there's nothing more at the moment.”

De Ligt has risen to prominence over the last two years for both club and country and he was also named 2018's Golden Boy.
