Transfer: De Ligt reveals Ronaldo has asked him to join Juventus




Netherlands defender, Matthijs de Ligt, who is widely expected to leave Ajax Amsterdam in the coming weeks, has revealed he was asked about a move to Italian champions Juventus by Cristiano Ronaldo, at the end of Sunday’s Nations League final.

Ronaldo’s Portugal triumphed 1-0 to win the tournament.

Television images showed Juve forward Ronaldo having a chat with De Ligt at the end of the game and the Dutchman confirmed a possible move to the Italian side had been raised by the five-times Ballon d’Or winner.

“I didn’t understand him at first. I was a little shocked, so I laughed. But I didn’t say anything.

“So soon after the game you are not at all concerned with it.

“You are disappointed that you have lost and that is the only thing you are thinking about,” De Ligt told the Netherlands’ NOS television.
