Man Utd and Liverpool transfer target Matthijs de Ligt hints at Juventus switch


Mino Raiola holds the key to the future of Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt, who has admitted a move to Juventus "could happen" in the summer.
The in-demand centre-back, 19, has been linked with a host of Europe's top clubs as Barcelona , Bayern Munich,
Manchester City and Manchester United all reportedly weigh up a bid.

His Ajax teammate Frenkie de Jong has already agreed a deal to join Barcelona at the end of the season, but De Ligt insists the pair have not spoken about reuniting at the Nou Camp.

Instead it seems as though the young Holland star is leaving his transfer plans in the hands of his agent, Raiola, and a move to Turin would appeal.


De Ligt refused to rule out a switch to the Italian champions as he revealed he is a big admirer of Juventus defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci.

“[A move to Juventus] could happen, but there are others who are also interested,” he told Tuttosport .
“We'll see at the right time. At the moment I'm fully focused on Ajax and my agent Raiola is taking care of the rest. Also, [Frenkie] de Jong hasn't spoken to me about a move to Barcelona.

“I really admire Chiellini, he's a very strong centre-back and one of the best ever. I also appreciate Bonucci. They are two of the best centre-backs in Europe and two examples to follow for a young player like me.”

De Ligt will come up against Juventus - and Cristiano Ronaldo - in the Champions League quarter-finals, having starred in Ajax's run to the last eight.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best in the world and with him Juventus are stronger,” he said. “However, it will be a fascinating challenge to play against him.

“Juventus are a great team but we believe we can go through because we are younger and there's less pressure on us. Also, we have our own CR7: Dusan Tadic!”
