Manchester United Urged To Sign De Ligt

De Ligt has played a pivotal role in Ajax's run to the Champions League semi-finals, scoring the victor against Juventus on Tuesday night to book his team's place in the last four of Europe's elite club competition.

Ajax produced a spell-binding display of inventive, passing football to win 2-1 away to Juventus on Tuesday and end the Serie A team's dreams of winning the Champions League, while a Lionel Messi-inspired Barcelona cruised past Man Utd.

He has scored five goals this campaign, one against Manchester United and a hat-trick which rescued Juventus in the last-16 second leg against Atletico Madrid, before returning from injury to score against Ajax.

"That tells you everything [about the competition]", the Barcelona skipper said about Juventus' elimination from the Champions League.

"We have incredible talents and, for our nation, it will get better and better", said manager Erik ten Hag.

The unmarked Ronaldo met Miralem Pjanic's corner with a trademark thunderous header as Ajax complained of a foul on Joel Veltman. The season before that, Barca couldn't score a goal against Juventus, again losing in the quarterfinals.

But Ajax were level within six minutes when Hakim Ziyech's shot fell into Van De Beek's path and the midfielder made the most of his good fortune with an assured finish into the bottom corner.

Juventus themselves have been impressed by the whizkid, who they view as a long-term replacement for Giorgio Chiellini. A week ago in Amsterdam, Ajax and Juventus played out a 1-1 draw at the Johann Cruyff Arena, goals courtesy of David Neres and Cristiano Ronaldo, respectively.

The Polish keeper denied Ziyech from close range with one hand, and minutes later tipped Van de Beek's curling effort over the bar.

The Old Lady upstaged by Ajax's young guns. Real Madrid simply couldn't cope with the fluidity, and now Juventus have fallen to their tactical prowess.

And the 19-year-old, who was not born when Ajax last reached the last four, was left stunned by what he and his team-mates had achieved. "He's disappointed like all of us", said Allegri. "Now we have to reset everything and concentrate on Saturday to bring the Scudetto home".
