CRISTIANO RONALDO urged Ajax sensation Matthijs de Ligt to snub a move to Manchester United and join him at Juventus after last night's Nations League final.

Van de Beek is hot property having enjoyed a superb season with the Amsterdam giants that saw them reach the Champions League semi-final stage.

"The transfer period starts in a while, so I will first go on a nice vacation and rest".

A bewildered De Ligt admitted he did not know how to respond to the freakish, real-life pop-up ad and says he just laughed.

The 19-year-old Ajax FC captain is being chased by a host of top European clubs that includes Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Manchester United and Juventus.

"You see that a lot - players go to another country, another competition", he said.

Barcelona are ready to make a final push to sign Ajax centre-back Matthijs de Ligt this week by re-opening talks with his agent Mino Raiola, sources have told ESPN FC.

Pressing Netherlands in the midfield, the high energy Portugal side created a number of goal opportunities but could only muster the one goal - a rasping strike from Goncalo Guedes that nestled into the bottom corner despite Cillessen getting a hand to it. 'I was a little shocked by that question, that's why I laughed. "I will let it happen and then I will see", he said.

"I am not happy that we lost but proud that we came here".

Italian champions Juventus are also admirers of De Ligt and they are a 14/1 (+1400) shot with Betway to win the race for the teenager, who scored against the Bianconeri this season to knock them out of the Champions League. "So I said... no, I didn't say anything".

Barca already have an agreement in place with Ajax should they manage to convince De Ligt to move to the Camp Nou for around €80m.

"It's important for a young player to play, that's the only thing I'm sure of".

"It's not up to me to say what he's going to do or his thoughts".
