Ajax: 'End in sight for De Ligt'

Ajax director Marc Overmars confirms “the end is in sight” for Matthijs de Ligt and his Juventus transfer. “It’s about bank guarantees now.”

The defender is expected to fly in this evening so that he can be ready for his medical on Tuesday morning and has already been left out of the Ajax pre-season training camp.

“The end is in sight,” Overmars told Voetbal International.

“It’s about bank guarantees now, as Ajax are always very strict on these matters. I hope it all progresses quickly, but I’m sure they will work it out. They are Italians.”

De Ligt is reported to be joining Juve for €65m plus performance-related bonuses and add-ons, while he’ll sign a five-year contract worth approximately €8m per season plus bonuses.
