Barcelona have placed Ajax's Matthijs de Ligt on their radar, wwwpic5678 as a potential back-up in defence to Gerard Pique.The club's technical directors have been following the player for a long time and have travelled to Amsterdam on numerous occasions to scout him.The Blaugrana have been checking the market for potential reinforcement on the right side of central defence, wwwpic5678 as Samuel Umtiti, Thomas Vermaelen and Clement Lenglet are all left-footed.Such a move would be vital for the team, as it will both provide Pique with some rest and create competition for the position.De Ligt is under contract with Ajax and a potential agreement between the two teams could be reached next summer.In this scenario, Vermaelen would leave as his contract ends in June and Barcelona haven't expressed any intention to renew it. wwwpic5678
