Clubs like Barcelona, Manchester United and PSG were also seriously interested in the services of the 19-year-old Dutch worldwide but it was Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus that won the battle to sign him - in no small part due to the Portuguese sensation.

"Hello Bianconeri, this is Matthijs", he said in one video.

With the Red Devils he would've been given the chance to revive a sleeping giant and he would've been guaranteed a starring role.

Matthijs de Ligt scored for Ajax against Juventus in the Champions League last season.

A £63m deal has been thrashed out between Ajax and Juventus, with the player now set to undergo his medical at the J Center on Wednesday before he is unveiled as the club's latest high profile signing.

After long weeks of negotiation, De Ligt is expected to arrive in Turin on Tuesday night and receive a medical exam early in the next morning. "You are disappointed that you have lost and that is the only thing you are thinking about". He has also earned 15 caps for the Netherlands senior side, with his solitary goal coming against England in the UEFA Nations League semifinals.

The Netherlands centre-back had also been linked with Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris-St Germain.

The Netherlands global is set to become Juventus' sixth signing of the summer transfer window already, with the club's three most high profile arrivals joining on free transfers.
