Juventus have fended off intense competition to snap up De Ligt. Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and Bayern Munich all expressed an interest in signing the Dutch phenom.

Once his transfer to Juventus is complete, De Ligt will earn a whopping £270,000-a-week with add-ons increasing his possible earnings to a mega £415,000-a-week, after agreeing a five-year contract.

The Serie A champions have also agreed to a release clause of around €150 million (£134 million) for the 19-year-old.
