De Ligt: I have to think things through and we'll see what happens

Matthijs de Ligt wasn't giving away any hints about his future after clinching the Eredivisie title with Ajax on Wednesday night.

The centre-back has been linked with a move to Barcelona or a Premier League side after proving himself on the European stage as Ajax captain this season.

"We've just won [the league] and this isn't the time to talk about whether I'm leaving with Frenkie de Jong," said the 19-year-old. "I have to think things through this summer and we'll see what happens."

De Ligt has led his team to a domestic double, as well as playing a pivotal role in the club's incredible run to the Champions League semi-finals.

"It's been a great season," he said. "I enjoyed the cup, the league and the Champions League, although the elimination to Tottenham [Hotspur] hurt. But what I've liked the most was the team spirit.

"We're a group of friends and we play football as if we were on the school playground. We've created a bond. We're proud."

Barcelona are confident of signing De Ligt, having already sealed a move for De Jong.
