Another Ajax sensation Frenkie de Jong has already been signed up by Barcelona for the next season onwards, and both De Ligt and De Jong share a very good rapport on field for Ajax currently.

By signing up De Ligt too, Barcelona can ensure that the team chemistry within the squad increases with the Ajax duo playing together at the Camp Nou. Both the players being from the same home nation also increases the chances of better performances, as they both would share the same dressing room for their International fixtures in the future.

Though Barcelona will have to reach deep into their pockets to land De Ligt from Ajax, as they have already emptied their pockets to sign De Jong, but the Spanish giants can benefit from the proceeds if they are to win the Champions League this season.

It will be a treat to the eyes to watch De Jong and De Ligt playing together in the Barca colours.
