Ajax chief Van der Sar won't keep Barcelona target De Ligt against his will

Ajax chief Edwin Van der Sar says they won't hold Matthijs de Ligt against his will.

The defender is a target for Barcelona this summer.

Van der Sar responded by saying that De Ligt "must first focus on Ajax" and decide what the future holds at the end of the season.

"It doesn't matter how fantastic the offers are. Financially, we are in a strong position. We want out budget to rise but not because we are selling players. I don't want Ajax to be seen as a selling club."

He admitted it was normal such performances would generate interest and that he wouldn't stand in the way such the player ask to leave. However he added that selling off all their star players in one window wouldn't happen either.
