Real Madrid make contact with Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt

Real Madrid make contact with Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt

The 19-year-old defender said he would make a decision on his future after the Nations League, with Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain also reportedly interested.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports Italy reports the Netherlands centre-back has made a decision to join Serie A champions Juventus.

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.

"I didn't understand him at first".

It is believed that Ronaldo asked De Ligt to com and join him in Turin though De Ligt denied this.

During his 2016 campaign launch, he said Mexico was sending "rapists" and criminals across the border. The most recent AP-NORC poll conducted in mid-June shows Trump with 26% support among Hispanics.

"I was surprised which is why I laughed!"

PSG have emerged as favourites for De Ligt after tabling an offer worth €220,000-a-week.

Per Sky Italia, a £62m transfer fee plus considerable personal terms will see de Ligt opt for the Seria A giants.

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. United failed to offer Champions League football.

Barca had always been considered favourites to sign De Ligt, with his Ajax team-mate Frenkie de Jong already secured for the 2019-20 season and the Catalan giants hoping that the chance to play alongside Lionel Messi would also work in their favour.
