Matthijs De Ligt will go now and only then will he probably decide what to do in the near future. No doubt he will not easily forget the Cristiano Ronaldo proposal and the praise received from the international press, which often places him as one of the most promising players in the world.

Juventus would follow the situation in this way, imagining a future central defensive couple composed of the young and Giorgio Chiellini.

To find out more, we just have to wait for Fabio Paratici (Juventus) to make his move and get to the boy born in 1999.

Cristiano Ronaldo's approval has been confirmed, which could be a decisive push for the club in its attempt to close the agreement against its rivals. However, its cost is very high, about 80 million, but for this there are no other interested formations on his profile. Among these, the interest of Bayern Munich seems to have grown: although they have never made concrete proposals to the player and the team, the German team seems to be really one of the destinations most appreciated by the young player of Ajax, Matthijs De Ligt.
