Today's biggest news of the day involves Dutch sensation Matthijs de Ligt. While Barcelona and Manchester United fight among themselves for the signature of the Ajax captain, it seems that Juventus have stolen a march on the two heavy weights! And the events have unfolded in perhaps the most unusual of circumstances.

Portugal and Netherlands faced each other on Sunday in the final of the UEFA Nations League. Portugal finished winners and after the game, Cristiano Ronaldo was seen talking to de Ligt, something that got everyone curious. It was later understood that the Portugal skipper had actually asked the Dutchman to come to Turin.

de Ligt himself confirmed that at the post match interview

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.
Just after the game you just feel bad that you’ve lost, that’s all you’re thinking about.

He refused to reveal if he would listen to Ronaldo, insisting that he had not arrived at a decision regarding his future yet

Now I will go on vacation, I'll think carefully about what is best for me and then I'll decide.

Juventus are considered to be outsiders in the race to the Dutchman's signature, but can Ronaldo's intervention change all that? Only time will tell.
