Juventus are serious in their intentions to bring Matthijs De Ligt to Turin this summer, despite opposition from Barcelona.

The 19-year old Ajax captain has had a series of impressive displays this season, making the top priority for a series of Europe’s elite clubs.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Juve are prepared bet heavily on the Dutchman by bringing him to Turin to partner Giorgio Chiellini.

Despite the Bianconeri’s interest, Barcelona are reportedly in the lead to land the youngster with Ajaxs’ reported asking price believed to be €80m.
