Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer but says he could join Serie A champions Juventus.

A host of Europe’s top clubs are believed to be keen on the talented 19-year-old, and he admitted there’s plenty of interest in his services.

“[A move to Juventus] could happen, but there are others who are also interested,” he said.

“We’ll see at the right time. At the moment I’m fully focused on Ajax and my agent Raiola is taking care of the rest.

“Also, [Frenkie] de Jong hasn’t spoken to me about a move to Barcelona.
