According to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt is close to joining Juventus for €70m with a contract worth €20m per year.
The centre-back had seemingly whittled down the list of pretenders to Paris Saint-Germain and Juve, despite interest also from Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United.
It had been suggested the 19-year-old was taking a few more days to make his decision while on vacation in Miami.
Now De Telegraaf claims De Ligt is on the verge of a move to Juventus for €70m.
Sky Sport Italia transfer pundit Gianluca Di Marzio also states this evening that the Bianconeri have suddenly stepped up their efforts for the Dutch international defender.
He would put pen to paper on a contract worth somewhere between €15-20m per season, making him the second highest paid player in Serie A after Cristiano Ronaldo on €30m.
