Super agent Mino Raiola has confirmed that Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt has agreed personal terms to join Juventus, MySportDab reports.
MySportDab reports Manchester United have been tracking De Ligt all summer and the Dutchman remains the most sought-after defender in Europe.
The 19-year-old enjoyed a stunning season with Ajax as he captained them to the domestic double and the Champions League semi-final.
Barcelona were also understood to be interested but it appears Juventus have won the race to sign the coveted teenager.
“Matthijs has agreed personal terms with Juve,” Raiola told Dutch paper De Telegraaf.
“We’re waiting for them to complete the agreement with Ajax soon.
“An arbitration case is out of the question for us, I advised Matthijs [on this], because it does not suit his style.
“The player only hopes that Juventus and Ajax will show the will to get out and that the deal is completed quickly.”
A fee now needs to be agreed between the two clubs and the centre-back could cost the Italian giants more than £60million.
MySportDab understands that the agreement is worth £10.8m (€12m) per year – which equates to around £230,000 per week – but the clubs must now agree a transfer fee, with Ajax asking for £67.3m (€75m).
Juventus are so far offering to pay £49.3m (€55m) plus £9m in bonuses (€10m) as negotiations continue for the highly-rated 19-year-old Netherlands international, who was previously linked with Barcelona.
