Ajax youngster, Matthijs de Ligt admits Cristano Ronaldo asked him to join Juventus despite rumors of various links.
Cristano Ronaldo recently led his national team to a victory against Netherland to claim the trophy but guess he is not done yet as he also tries to win over their wonderkid, De Ligt to his club side.
The Dutch kid wouldn’t be forgetting the past night anytime soon, as he didn’t only get to face the 5 times Balon d’or winner, Ronaldo.
Ronaldo also helped spiced De Ligt’s night when he asked him to join his club side, Juventus when the match was over.
Really, the 19 year old has impressed not just top flight teams but also Ronaldo who thinks the De Ligt would help solve the little shake-up at Allianz Stadium.
Ever since Ronaldo arrived Juventus, he has been struggling to balance his two legs and do what he’s known for, just like the days at Santiago Bernabeu.
Reason because his new side has little problem at he back side, and being a player who hates loses, he now has to help the defence, instead of concentrating to score goals alone.
With several failed attempts to convience his former teammate, Marcelo to join him at Juventus, Ronaldo has decided to look elsewhere for help.
Exactly the reason why he asked wonderkid De Ligt to become an Old Lady like him.
This was made public when De Ligt spoke to NOS(a Dutch television channel) after the match.
“That could well be true,” De Ligt said. “What I answered? I didn’t understand him at first. So I said… no, I didn’t say anything.
“I was a bit shocked, that’s why I laughed. But I didn’t say anything. Just after the game you just feel bad that you’ve lost, that’s all you’re thinking about.
“I will go on vacation now, I am going to think about what’s best for me and then I will decide.
“I think it’s important for a young player to play, that’s the only thing I know.”
Guess the youngster might want to take up the offer and join Aaron Ramsey as new members of the team despite strong link from other top flight teams.
But this would mean leaving the only club that made him right from the very youngstage.
