De Ligt Arrives in Turin to Sign for Juventus

One of the summer's biggest transfers looks set to become a done deal as Matthijs de Ligt arrived in Turin to join Juventus from Ajax.

The 19-year-old central defender is yet to undergo a medical and finalise the switch but has now landed at Turin-Caselle Airport.

His new club shared a video of him disembarking from a private jet as he prepares to conclude a 75 million euro move which will see him earn 12 million euros per season.

Juventus' offer convinced the Dutch international to reject the likes of Barcelona and some of Europe's biggest clubs in favour of a move to Italy.

"Hello 'Bianconeri', I'm Matthijs and I am very happy to be here," said De Ligt.
