The Ajax team were on a dream journey this season in the Dutch League and in the Champions League.
They were living the dream and the young team had a wild ride until they were crashed down to reality by Tottenham Hotspur. And now more bad news could be set to follow with De Ligt set to leave the club.
“Frenkie de Jong is already a Barcelona footballer, while De Ligt I think will go to England or Spain,” Van der Sar told Sky in Italy. “I think the players also want to win something. Perhaps for the two of them it can be the last chance to win something special with our club. Matthijs has been here for 12 years, we hope it will be a great ending for him.”
“The idea is to keep him with us next season, we do not make changes in the technical staff otherwise I would have too much work during the holidays,” Van der Sar joked. “We hope not to sell so many players, otherwise as an alternative we have players from our youth sector to replace those who leave. But we hope to sell only two or three.”
