Juventus land defender De Ligt from Ajax - Sky Italy

Barcelona are more likely to sign Matthijs de Ligt than Manchester United- Duncan Castles

Juventus are hopeful of beating Paris Saint-Germain to the signing of Matthijs de Ligt and have started negotiations with the player's agent, Mino Raiola, in order to wrap up a deal.

De Ligt played a key role in helping Ajax Amsterdam clinch the league and cup double, while they also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

As we reported earlier Europe's most sought after young player De Ligt looks to have made a decision to move to Turin in a £62 million deal, with the Italian side beating off competition from Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG to sign the highly-rated 19-year-old.

RMC says, however, De Ligt hasn't ruled out Barca.

The report claims the deal will cost Juventus around £62million, although negotiations about personal terms are yet to finalised.

De Ligt was said to have shunned a move to Barcelona while PSG were unable to see through their interest.

Should De Ligt decide to move to the Italian club he could rake in between 15 to 20 million euros ($17 to $22 million) annually, the NOS added, saying the contract would last five years.

De Ligt looks set to become Maurizio Sarri's first signing as Juventus manager after he left Chelsea to return to his native Italy.

The Italian club, who have no genuine rivals in Serie A, are strengthening their squad ahead of another attempt to win the Champions League.
