He helped his boyhood side to a domestic double and they came within seconds of reaching the Champions League final before Tottenham scored a last-gasp victor in the semi-finals.

It was expected he would follow team mate Frenkie de Jong to Barcelona, with the midfielder having turned down the advances of PSG to move to La Liga.

The 19-year-old centre-back is reportedly being courted by every top club in Europe this summer with Barcelona, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain understood to be his keenest admirers. I was a bit shocked, that's why I laughed.

"I will first go on a nice vacation and rest. I will let it happen and then I will see", he said.

Van de Beek was also part of the Netherland's Nations League squad.

De Jong admits he'd like for De Ligt to join him in Spain, but wouldn't want to influence his decision at the same time.

Cristiano Ronaldo has attempted to persuade Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt to join him at Juventus next season, according to the defender.

All the talk in the transfer market is where Matthijs de Ligt will end up before next season gets underway but Donny van de Beek could yet steal some of the headlines.

"I think in the beginning we didn't expect to reach the final, but we did and if it is a final you want to win it".

Ajax team-mate Van De Beek echoed those sentiments after Holland just fell short at the Estadio do Dragao on Sunday night.

"Manchester United were 9/4 and touted as a likely destination last week, but bets on a move to Old Trafford have cooled and that move is now priced at 4/1". "So I said... no, I didn't say anything". But I didn't say anything.

With those words, De Ligt's future continues to be the source of many rumours.

On De Ligt, who was nutmegged by Goncalo Guedes before the Portugal winger exchanged passes with Bernardo Silva and fired in a 60th-minute victor, Van de Beek added: "A lot of clubs want to buy him, I think, because he is a good player and now he has to choose for himself".

'He is a really good guy, a really good player he is a good professional who always trains extra and he is a really good guy'.
