Juventus have completed the signing of Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax for €75 million.

De Ligt, 19, arrived in Italy on Tuesday to undergo a medical before signing for a five-year contract with the Bianconeri which could increase by another 10.5m in add-ons.

The defender had attracted interest from Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Bayern Munich among others after helping Ajax reach the Champions League semifinal and Netherlands the UEFA Nations League final.

Although Ajax lost to Spurs in the Champions League, de Ligt did win the Eredivisie title and Dutch Cup as part of a side that also featured Frenkie De Jong, who has since joined Barcelona.
