De Ligt agrees terms with Juventus
Matthijs de Ligt seems close to deciding his future and it appears to be good news for Juventus.
The Ajax captain has been linked with Europe’s biggest clubs after a standout campaign, including leading the Dutch giants to the Eredivisie title and Champions League semi-finals.
Paris Saint-Germain were reportedly favourites to sign the centre-back, but it seems De Ligt is close to joining Juventus.

De Ligt has accepted a five-year contract worth €12million a year from Juventus, according to Sky Sport.
It is a big step for the Serie A champions, who must still strike a deal with Ajax for the defender.
However, Sky Sport also report PSG are still in the race for De Ligt.
The arrival of De Ligt in Turin would be a boost for Juve, whose formidable defence has the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, 34, and Leonardo Bonucci, 32, nearing retirement.
