The 19-year-old defender has seen his stock continue to rise this season as he captained an Ajax side that pushed all the way to the Champions League semi-finals.

Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar admitted after their Champions League exit that the teen was playing in his final games for the club and hoped the defender would go out on a high.

The CEO also said De Ligt would land in either Spain or England.
