Ajax wonder-kid Matthijs de Ligt refused to talk about his future after lifting the Eredivisie title on Wednesday.

The centre-back has been linked to a move to Barcelona for a while now. When asked if he is set to leave the club along with his friend Frenkie de Jong – who is already on his way to the Catalan club – the Dutchman said that he has to think things through.

“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, according to Marca.

“I have to think things through this summer and we’ll see what happens.”

The Ajax captain also reflected on what was a great season for the young Ajax side.

“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.”
