Cristiano Ronaldo urged De Ligt to join him at the Allianz Stadium after approaching the defender following Portugal's Nations League win against the Netherlands earlier this month.

It has been claimed that De Ligt's agent Mino Raiola has made a breakthrough in discussions with the club, who apparently see the 19-year-old as a long-term replacement for Giorgio Chiellini.

And once his deal is completed, the Italian side will slam a whopping £140 million release clause fee in the deal which will rise over the years.

Juventus have reportedly offered the player €8 million (R129 million) a year, plus add-ons, and convinced him to snub interest from Barcelona, United and Paris Saint-Germain. Italian publication Tuttosport ran with the story on their front page on Sunday with a £70million deal agreed to bring him to Turin. De Ligt said that as a boy, he dreamed of being with Cristiano Ronaldo and he even owned a United shirt with the Portuguese star's name on the back.
