De Ligt to Juventus on Monday

Matthijs de Ligt is expected to join Juventus on Monday, as the club worked out a deal worth €67m plus €13m in bonuses for the Ajax captain.

The 19-year-old defender had been tracked by Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, but for over a week now it has been known the Bianconeri have him in hand.

According to Tuttosport, Juve are ensuring the move is rushed through tomorrow by proposing €67m as a fixed fee, plus another €13m in fairly easy to achieve add-ons.

De Ligt already agreed personal terms, a five-year contract worth €8m per season plus €4m in bonuses for a total €12m.

Considering Italian clubs were always priced out of the market above all in terms of salary, the Government has passed a new tax law to encourage growth.

From January 2020, all Italian teams will be able to save significant amounts on wage bills, as long as players remain in Italy for two years.
