AFP, Rome :
Dutch central defender Matthijs de Ligt signed Thursday for Juventus from Ajax for a fee of 75 million euros ($84.2 million), the Italian champions said.
The 19-year-old has signed a five-year contract.
Juventus said in a statement the 75 million euros would be paid over five financial years, with "additional costs" of 10.5 million euros.
The fee for De Ligt makes him Juventus' third most expensive signing in their history after the 105 million euros they paid for Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018 and the 90-million-euro transfer of Gonzalo Higuain in 2016.
