And, according to Spanish football journalist Guillem Balague, Liverpool have "been talking" with De Ligt as they consider weighing up a move for the Holland global.
Barcelona already have 4 quality centre-backs on their books and would probably need to ensure the sale of at least one of them to have room for the Dutch wonderboy in their squad.
After Barcelona's hard-line stance on not improving their contract offer for Matthijs de Ligt, the player's agent Mino Raiola has made a decision to change strategy and wants to start an auction for the Dutch defender.
Does that mean Liverpool are close to signing him?

Barcelona are seen as favourites to sign him, while Manchester United have a very serious interest.
Liverpool already have Virgil Van Dijk in the backline, and should they add De Ligt to their roster, they could well have one of the best defensive partnerships in the world now.
United's interest in de Ligt has not lessened and Solskjaer sees the teenage sensation as the ideal foil for the flawed defence.
"It's important that he'll get playing time", Stam told DAZN, as quoted by Metro. In the club they believe that their future must be resolved in less than ten days'.
It's been reported that Hakim Ziyech will follow De Jong to the exit door and Matthijs de Ligt has been rumoured to also be leaving in the summer.
Virgil van Dijk was arguably the best player in the Premier League last season and pairing him alongside his fellow countryman could be a masterstroke.
