Matthijs de Ligt Set for Medical With Juventus


​Matthijs de Ligt is set to carry out a medical with Juventus on Monday after I Bianconeri finally came to a financial agreement with Ajax for the defender's signature.

The Dutch international's future has been one of the most-widely reported transfer sagas of the summer, with a host of sides all previously being linked with an approach, including Manchester United, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

 However, ​Juventus have looked to be in the driving seat over the past few weeks and, according to ​Gazzetta dello Sport, the deal is set to be complete within the next few days.

It was ​recently noted that Juventus were working their way up to Ajax's initial valuation of the 19-year-old and the report from Gazzetta dello Sport confirms that I Bianconeri have agreed to fork out €70m to bring him over to Turin - plus any further bonuses.

The two clubs - with the assistance of De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola - have been working tirelessly to come to an agreement, confirming the terms after a lengthy negotiation process.

De Ligt is set to sign a five-year deal with the Italian champions and his contract is also expected to include a release clause of €150m in a bid to ward off any future interest.
