Mino Raiola is reportedly trying to bring Barcelona back to the negotiating table over a deal for Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt.

Barca are said to have struck a deal with De Ligt’s representative in March over terms for the Holland centre-back to move to the Nou Camp in the summer.

De Ligt was expected to be following Frenkie De Jong to Barcelona with the midfielder already having signed his agreement to join the La Liga champions.

But De Ligt’s recent form and his prominence in Ajax’s run to the Champions League semi-finals has caught the attention of Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Liverpool. According to ESPN, Raiola is keen to re-open talks with Barca to get the 19-year-old a better deal.

Barca are open to improving their offer but will not be held to ransom by the agent, who knows he can get De Ligt a bigger salary by taking him to United.

De Ligt, though, is said to be most interested in either Barca or Bayern.
