Matthijs De Ligt is open to a Juventus move, but has not closed Barça or PSG doors

As reported by Gianluca di Marzio last night, Juventus believe that they have an opening to sign Ajax teenage defender Matthijs de Ligt after they were informed that the Dutchman would be open to moving to the Old Lady this summer.

The Bianconeri are understood to have opened negotiations with Ajax this morning via Sporting Director Fabio Paratici on both fee demands and also with the player’s entourage regarding the contract desired.

Confidence is growing for Juve, as Di Marzio claims that PSG have not closed a deal for the player and that he has apparently given up on a move to Barcelona.

Our colleagues at RMC see the situation slightly differently: They view the only development being that Juventus are now a rival to PSG in the fight for De Ligt’s signature, but that the player has not yet given a definitive response.
