Ajax

Juve or nothing according to De Ligt

6th July 2019, 13:54 by Dan McCarthy

Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt is only interested in securing a move to Juventus this summer, according to reports.

A move to the Italian champions was looking very likely not long ago but it is understood there has been a hitch in the agreement between the two parties.

That has offered the likes of Manchester United and Barcelona hope is gazumping the deal with both clubs said to be extremely interested in signing the defending.

However, according to new reports, the Ajax central defender has said he will only consider joining Juventus as his heart is set on a switch to Turin.

He will not be listening to offers from any other clubs and is confident a deal can be agreed between the Dutch and Italian champions to take him to the Allianz Stadium.

A fee of around £62million had reportedly been agreed a few weeks ago and it is thought that the transfer fee is holding up the move, not personal terms.
