FC Barcelona continue to focus on De Ligt. Mino Raiola, his agent, and the high asking price have been Barça's main obstacle ahead of signing the defender, but there could be another. According to 'Catalunya Radio', the footballer wants a higher salary than his compatriot Frenkie De Jong.

Matthijs de Ligt is at the very top of the Azulgrana shopping list. But despite their desire for the defender, Barça aren't willing to go to unreasonable lengths for his signing.

The central defender, according to 'Catalunya Radio', is not in complete agreement with the figures that Mino Raiola, his agent, and the club had discussed.

Now, De Ligt has asked to earn more than the figure that was decided in Monaco. In fact, the salary that the defender has his eyes on is above that which his Dutch compatriot De Jong will receive upon joining the Catalan club.

Barça have their minds made up: if De Ligt wants to end up there, he will have to lower his economic expectations. They won't budge.

De Ligt, on his part, is aware of the interest he has sparked across Europe. He has offers from various clubs which has given him leverage to tighten the knot on Barcelona and push them to raise their stakes.

'Mundo Deportivo' confirms that Barça have given him an ultimatum. De Ligt has 10 days to respond...
