Matthijs de Ligt Arrives In Turin Ahead Of His Transfer To Juventus

Matthijs de Ligt has arrived in Turin ahead of his £67.5 million transfer to Juventus.

After touching down, he issued a short message to Juventus fans: "Hello Bianconeri, this is Matthijs, I'm really happy to be here."

The young defender is set to undergo a medical on Wednesday before completing his move from Ajax.

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.
