After months coleando, the serial concerning the future of Matthijs of Ligt has finished definitively. The Juventus of Turín announced the signing of the Dutch defence, by which will pay 75 million euros in five terms, in addition to other ten and half possible in concept of variables. Practically the same conditions that the traspaso of Frenkie of Jong to the FC Barcelona.

"Matthijs Is a perfect synthesis of the modern defender, a player that recently participated to professional level but that from his arrival has spoken of him", prayed the official communiqué of the Juventus to inform on the traspaso, after emphasizing in the virtues of a footballer that has signed by five years and that will have a clause of rescission of 150 million euros.

One of the curiosities of the agreement of the new defence of the 'Vecchia Signora' is that said clause of rescission only will apply from 2021 by what, during at least three seasons, will not have a price of exit stipulated. Nevertheless, the player and his agent, Mino Raiola, wanted to ensure a possible road of leakage in case that the Dutch receive interesting offers.

Therefore, the Juventus will do with the services of a footballer of 19 years that has it everything to turn into the best defence of the world in a future. We are speaking of a central with a prodigious physicist, corpulento, high (189 centimetres) and fast. Besides, it anticipates like anybody, has big tactical perception and a good technician to take out the balloon played from backwards.

Especially marked remained the Juventus with the so much that the Dutch defender annotated in the Juventus Stadium in quarter-finals of the Champions League. A so much that dissipated the hopes bianconeras to put in semifinals of the fight by the 'orejona'. Curiously, Of Ligt, hangman of the Italians in this occasion, will be the new idol of the fans piamontesa.

The Barcelona remained without Of Ligt

The FC Barcelona was very near of fichar to Matthijs of Ligt, but finally remained without him. The exaggerated economic requirements of the Dutch defence and of his agent Mino Raiola made impossible his contracting for the culés, that had had to modify the scale salarial to adapt to the 12 net millions that asked the defence.
