Mundo Deportivo says De Ligt will not consider anyother offers until he knows the intentions of Barca.
For their part, the Catalans are keen and prepared to pay a similar fee to which they struck for his Ajax teammate Frenkie de Jong last month. De Jong will move to Barca in the summer for a price rising to €86m.
De Ligt identifies himself fully with the style of Barça and is up to date with everything that is published about him being linked to the club, thanks to his grandparents, who live in Dènia.
Just last week, after their Dutch Cup win over Heerenveen, De Ligt declared: "Anybody would like to play at Barça."
