De Ligt breaks silence on Ajax future

Matthijs de Ligt admits he may have played his last home game for Ajax.

Ajax took a giant step towards winning the title on Sunday as they beat Utrecht 4-1 on Sunday, meaning they will be champions barring a final day miracle.

De Ligt led the celebrations at full-time before being asked if this was his farewell appearance at the Johan Cruyff Arena.

“I don’t know yet.”

“There have been conversations, but there is still no agreement,” De Ligt said.

Ajax director of football Edwin van der Sar conceded before the Champions League defeat to Tottenham that De Ligt would be on his way this summer.

Frenkie de Jong has already agreed to join Barcelona and it appears De Ligt will follow him to the Nou Camp.

“I think these will be de Ligt’s final games with Ajax, but I hope he goes out on a high,” he said.

“He’s been here since he was a child and will end up at a big club. I think he’ll go to England or Spain.”
