De Ligt’s agent Mino Raiola is demanding a fee of at least £10.7m to make the deal happen with PSG also still interested in the defender
Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt has opted to join Juventus this summer, according to Sky in Italy.
Juventus have moved ahead of Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona in negotiations for the 19-year-old, but are still to agree personal terms with De Ligt’s agent, Mino Raiola.
Raiola is demanding a fee of at least £10.7m and a get-out clause which would vary at the end of every season, but would not drop below £134m.
Should the Netherlands international seal a move, it would make him the second-highest-paid player at Juventus, behind only Cristiano Ronaldo.
It is understood the transfer will cost the Italian side in the region of £62m.
De Ligt is one of Europe’s most sought-after players after captaining Ajax to the Dutch league and cup double as well as the semi-finals of the Champions League last season.
According to Sky in Italy, the centre-back has made the decision to join Serie A champions Juventus, turning down Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG.
De Ligt would become Maurizio Sarri’s first signing as Juventus manager after he left Chelsea to return to his native Italy.
The defender said he was asked about a move to Juventus by Ronaldo, who moved to Turin from Real Madrid for £106m last summer, at the end of the Nations League final earlier this month.
