Mino Raiola dismissed claims he was in France to finalise Matthijs de Ligt’s move to Paris Saint-Germain as “fake news”.
De Ligt, 19, has been linked with a move to PSG or Barcelona, with Manchester United and Liverpool also reported to be interested in the Ajax captain.
Raiola, the centre-back’s agent, was apparently pictured in Paris amid claims he was sealing De Ligt’s move to the Ligue 1 champions.
But the agent rubbished the reports, telling ANSA : “This is a classic example of fake news.”
De Ligt is set to leave Ajax in the close season after an impressive campaign during which he helped the Dutch giants win the Eredivisie and reach the Champions League semi-finals.
And the defender said on Tuesday that he wasn’t ready to make any decisions and was planning on taking his time.
“I still do not know what my heart says, I have been concentrated all the time on Ajax and the national team,” he told Mundo Deportivo.
