However, he has decided to move to Turin after Bayern dropped out of the race early. Barcelona failed to reach an agreement with the player. United failed to offer Champions League football.
De Ligt was a precocious figure in the Ajax team which won a domestic double in the Netherlands, while Juventus will know him well, with the teenager scoring the goal that knocked the Serie A champions out of the Champions League quarter-finals.
Juve have been busy in the transfer market this summer. They have already signed Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer from Arsenal and have also been linked heavily with a move for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
