Barcelona president Joan Laporta is incredibly keen to sign Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt this summer, according to reports in France.

The Holland defender joined the Serie A giants instead of long-term admirers Barcelona in a £67.8million deal from Ajax in 2019.

But now Le10 Sport claim the Catalan giants will renew their interest in a bid to unite the 21-year-old with his international team-mate Frenkie de Jong at the Nou Camp.

The report cites Spanish media reports that Barcelona could look to offer France forwards Antoine Griezmann or Ousmane Dembele in a direct swap deal, thought Italian reports claim Juventus are not keen on an exchange.

The three-time Oscar nominee and Tony Award winner is expounding on the high she gets whilst performing on stage—an “endlessly engaging” experience she’s been missing over the past year-plus that Broadway’s lights have been dark. In the meantime, the 64-year-old acting great has been at her home in Connecticut with a certain furry-tailed companion—a squirrel, that is, who emerges ever afternoon around 3 p.m., sprints five inches from her, dives into a bush, gathers berries, and brings them back.

Persuading the Italian giants appears to be a daunting task, with La Gazzetta dello Sport reporting de Ligt remains a fundamental part of returning boss Massimiliano Allegri's plans for the 2021-22 season alongside Leonardo Bonucci.

De Ligt made 36 appearances across all competitions for Juventus last season as the Turin-based club endured an underwhelming season, surrendering their nine-year hold on the Scudetto to Inter Milan.

Reports of Griezmann and Dembele being prepared as makeweights come as no surprise after claims earlier in the week that the duo are among 18 players Barcelona are prepared to let go this summer.

The Catalan club have made no secret of their financial struggles, with debts of around £862million only exacerbated by the global coronavirus pandemic.

Goal claimed the pair, alongside Brazil star Philippe Coutinho - who has been linked with a shock move to Leicester - as well as long-serving midfielder Sergio Busquets are among the stars they would listen to offers for.

Samuel Umtiti is another who could be available, while the departure of Miralem Pjanic, who joined just last summer, seems almost an inevitability.

Barcelona have, however, strengthened their squad ahead of the new season, with striker Sergio Aguero and defender Eric Garcia joining on free transfers after leaving Manchester City.
