Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has snubbed a move to Spanish champions Barcelona,according to Spanish press.

The 19-year-old was a star in the Ajax side that took apart Barca’s rivals Real Madrid en route to the Champions League semi-finals this summer – and is performances made him one of Europe’s most sought-after prospects this summer.
