In the wake of Portugal's UEFA Nations League win over Holland, Cristiano Ronaldo asked Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt to join Juventus. And though De Ligt's side suffered a 1-0 defeat, after the whistle he was seen laughing off with Ronaldo.

When De Ligt was asked what the conversation was about, he shockingly revealed that Ronaldo, the legendary forward was getting him to join the Italian champions. The 19-year-old said, "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."

And though De Ligt and Virgil van Dijk seemed to have created a solid partnership for Ronald Koeman's side, it was Goncalo Guedes who was seen scoring the decisive goal. The young central defender also has a host of Europe's top clubs chasing him for this summer while it seems inevitable that he will leave Ajax.

He was also seen helping his side to a domestic double and they were seconds of reaching the Champions League final, but Tottenham scored a last-gasp the semi-finals. It is also reported that Manchester United and Barcelona have contacted De Ligt, while Liverpool is also understood to be interested.

And whether or not Ronaldo said things jokingly, but the Dutchman is yet to weigh up his options. He said, "Now I will go on vacation, I'll think carefully about what is best for me and then I'll decide. For a young player like me, it's important to go to a club where I can play consistently. That's the main issue."
