Transfer: PSG doubles Barca’s offer to snatch De Ligt.
PSG are willing to offer Matthijs de Ligt a double of whatever Barcelona has given him to snatch the Dutchman away from Camp Nou.
Reports says both sides have intensified efforts in negotiations and they are now confident of securing a deal for the defender.
PSG’s, new director of football,Leonardo has a fantastic relationship with Mino Raiola, de Ligt’s agent and have opted to offer the Ajax captain a five year deal worth €15m per season.
That’s far and above the terms Barça presented to the player which was between €5m-€7m per campaign.
Not only is the offer to the player higher than what Barça bid, but also the transfer fee.
President Bartomeu had agreed a €75m deal with Ajax but PSG are willing to go up to €90m (€80+€10m in variables) to land the defender.
