De_Ligt_Ajax_GETTY

Ajax captain, Matthijs de Ligt, has decided to join Juventus this summer, according to Sky Italia.

De Ligt is one of Europe's most sought-after players, after helping Ajax win the Dutch league and cup double, while reaching the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.

The 19-year-old defender said he would make a decision on his future after the Nations League, with Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain also reportedly interested.

It is understood he has now made the decision to join Serie A champions Juventus.

The transfer will cost the Italian side around £62million, with personal terms yet to be finalised.

De Ligt himself rejected a potential move to Barcelona while Paris Saint-Germain failed to see through their interest.
