Barcelona are becoming resigned to missing out on Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt.
De Ligt and Ajax teammate Frenkie de Jong are both major targets for Barca, though there’s a growing acceptance that a deal for the former is unlikely.
Mundo Deportivo says the road block comes in the form of De Ligt’s agent, Mino Raiola, who is expected to place the youngster at the highest bidder.
Barca have little interest in paying out huge agent’s commissions to land the Dutchman and instead are prepared to look elsewhere for a new defensive signing.
Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Juventus are also interested in the 22 year-old.
