Juventus showed they were not above a little bit of ambush marketing as their star striker Cristiano Ronaldo urged De Ligt to make the move to Turin, immediately after Portugal won the Nations League.
They were defeated by Tottenham in that semi-final battle, but the Eredivisie champions were able to take down reigning champions Real Madrid and Ronaldo's Juventus along the way, with De Ligt putting in standout performances in both ties.
Asked how he reflected on the campaign, De Ligt said: "I think it was a hard end to a memorable season".
"I don't know, I don't know", he said when asked where he will be next season.
The Dutchman was part of a rearguard tasked with stopping the ever-dangerous Portuguese star in Monday UEFA Nations League final in Porto.
"Now I will go on vacation, I'll think carefully about what is best for me and then I'll decide".
"We've seen a big move on Liverpool signing de Ligt over the weekend, with the 19-year-old now just 3/1 to join the European champions having been as big as 12/1 last week".
"My situation is I have a contract with Ajax and I am really happy", he said.
Ajax midfielder Donny Van De Beek interested in a Manchester United move in this summer transfer window.
'You never know what is going to happen in the future but I can say nothing about that'.
And it's a rather important summer for one player involved in particular.
"I think he's a proper Premier League player - he's got a big tank, he's got the education from Ajax, he can play in more positions in midfield". 'Players go to another country, another competition, that's normal in Holland, in the Dutch league, you see that a lot of times'.
