Where will the teenager go? That remains up in the air.
However, after Portugal beat the Dutch, Ronaldo tried to convince de Ligt to join Juventus.
Speaking to NOS after the final, de Ligt revealed what Ronaldo said after the full-time whistle blew:
Ronaldo asked me to go to Juventus. I was surprised by his request, which is why I laughed.
I didn’t understand him at first.
So where is Matthijs de Ligt going?
Matthijs de Ligt was also pressed about where he’s likely to move to.
The defender told the press the following:
''I’m going on holidays now. I’m going to think about what’s best for me and then I’ll decide.''
