De Ligt out of Ajax tour as Juventus transfer beckons
Juventus target Matthijs de Ligt is "awaiting a possible transfer," Ajax have confirmed, with all signs pointing to a big-money move to Turin.
Matthijs de Ligt's expected move to Juventus appears close to completion after Ajax omitted their captain from a pre-season trip to Austria.
The Eredivisie champions confirmed defender De Ligt was "awaiting a possible transfer" as they announced a 28-man travelling squad.

The Netherlands international trained with Ajax as recently as Friday, but a breakthrough in negotiations is said to have been reached.
It seems the Serie A side now only have to complete the final formalities before announcing their seventh new arrival of the close-season.
One of the world's most in-demand players, De Ligt was linked to Barcelona, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain before Juve emerged as favourites for his signature.
