Almost a year ago, Matthijs de Ligt left Ajax after a magnificent campaign in the Champions League to head for Juventus Turin, for a check for around € 85 million.
He could also have landed at Real Madrid as revealed AS this Friday. The very young Dutch defender was proposed by his agent Mino Raiola at Casa Blanca. Instead, Madrid’s leaders opted for the cheaper profile of Éder Militão. The Brazilian defender was recruited for € 50 million in Porto.
