Thus, with this update, it is also being claimed that De Ligt will not join the Ajax squad for the pre-season tour in Austria, and will head to Juventus for his medical, and will soon join his new teammates for the pre-season tour.

Maurizio Sarri's side will pay 75-million Euro for de Ligt with Ajax hoping to receive most of that fee up-front, while Juve are keen for a deal with installments.

Matthijs de Ligt's move to Juventus is on the brink of completion as I Bianconeri and Ajax are said to be in the final stages of negotiation.

De Ligt's future has been the subject of much speculation over the summer, with a number of Europe's top clubs having been interested in signing him at one stage or another.

While de Ligt has chosen Juventus - turning down interest from Barcelona, Manchester United and others - his current and prospective clubs are still to reach an agreement.

The 19-year-old defender further gained the attention of Juventus, after his goal through header and disciplined defending impressed the officials at the Italian club.
