Barça will not equal United's offer for De Ligt

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 +10k

Pessimism is rife in Barcelona, where the signing of Matthijs de Ligt is no longer so clear. The 14 million euros offered annually by Old Trafford are far out of reach for the Azulgranas.

According to 'Sport', Barcelona are not prepared to break the squad's budget for Matthijs de Ligt. They won't reach, or even get close, to the 14 million euros offered by Manchester United.

As a result, the deal has stopped in its tracks, and the interest may follow in the same way given that Barcelona are not willing to break the bank.

Although the transfer had seemed pretty much done and dusted, the high requests of Mino Raiola and De Ligt have put the operation in jeopardy. Although the player's desire is to accompany his compatriot ​De Jong, the agent wants a big contract.

Beyond wanting to start matches from his arrival, and not be eclipsed by Pique, the Dutchman demands that Barcelona equal - or come close to- the 14 million offered by Old Trafford. Something that, at the moment, the Camp Nou won't be able to do.
