Juventus got one of the biggest prizes of the summer transfer window by beating the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United to De Ligt’s signature.

The now 20-year-old Dutchman has since become a regular member of Maurizio Sarri’s line-up.

2019 was De Ligt’s breakthrough year upon leading Ajax to the Champions League semi-finals and helping the Netherlands reach the UEFA Nations League final.

He capped it off by winning the 2019 Kopa Trophy award last month.
