Man United target Matthijs de Ligt has disclosed the details of the conversation he had with Cristiano Ronaldo after Portugal beat the Netherlands in the final of the UEFA Nations League on Sunday.
Portugal won their second international trophy in 4 years as Goncalo Guedes scored the winner to secure the victory for the hosts in Porto.
After the game, cameras captured a discourse between Ronaldo and De Ligt on the pitch. The 19-year old went on to reveal the details of the conversation in a chat with NOS.
“He asked me to come to Juventus”
“I was a little shocked by that question, that’s why I laughed. I didn’t understand him at first.”
“Now I will go on vacation, I’ll think carefully about what is best for me and then I’ll decide,” De Ligt said of his future.
“For a young player like me, it’s important to go to a club where I can play consistently. That’s the main issue.”
It can be recalled that sources disclosed last month that Man United were in pole position to sign De Ligt. However, United sources quelled the reports by telling MEN that they do not expect to sign the Dutch defender.
According to MEN in a previous report, Manchester United scouted De Ligt before he made his Ajax debut with Jose Mourinho interested in signing the youngster.
