Barcelona are preparing a move for Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt this year.
De Ligt is unsettled in Turin and La Repubblica says he is ready to leave at the end of the season.
Barca are watching developments closely and have learned that Juve would be prepared to sell for €65m.
Indeed, Barca coach Xavi has instructed intermediaries to lay down groundwork to set up a deal for the Dutchman.
Chelsea and Bayern Munich are also in contact with De Ligt's camp.
