De Ligt emerged from the famous Ajax youth academy and carved a niche for himself by becoming the club’s youngest captain.
The defender also found the back of the net for Ajax when they eliminated Juventus from the 2018/19 UCL to reach the last 4 of the competition.
Before then, he was the youngest player to feature in a European final in Ajax’ Europa League final loss to Manchester United.
De Ligt will play alongside the likes of Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci at Juventus under newly appointed manager Maurizio Sarri.
