This week saw one of the summer’s transfer sagas meet a conclusion, as Matthijs De Ligt officially joined Serie A side, Juventus.
As such, his move features on our round-up of Instagram highlights this week, along with a throwback from Ronaldo and more.
A final farewell from Ajax
Ajax’s Golden Boy has finally left the club and seems to leave with the best wishes of all involved.
Captain of the club as a teenager, he made a massive impact in a short amount of time and somehow it feels likely that De Ligt and Ajax’s paths will cross again in the future.
Bon Anniversaire, Coupe du monde
This week the French nation celebrated the first anniversary of their World Cup triumph in Russia last year. And why wouldn’t you?
Messi on vacation
Imagine having a beer with Lionel Messi.
The legend’s other half, Antonela Roccuzzo shared this snap of Leo having a beer on holiday and it’s an absolute mood.
Looking like a modern-day hipster, Ronaldo shared this photo of himself at the 1994 World Cup in USA.
Then just 17, he didn’t make an appearance that summer and was more drinking it all in, capturing the moment on VHS it seems.

Aos 17 anos, pouco mais de um ano depois de entrar para o futebol profissional, fui convocado pela primeira vez para a Copa do Mundo. Se o futebol foi a minha escola da vida, o tetra, do banco de reservas, foi uma das minhas primeiras grandes lições. Um privilégio ter aprendido sobre garra, disciplina e união de equipe com uma geração de grandes nomes do nosso futebol, que quebrou paradigmas. Obrigado, Seleção Brasileira! #25anosdotetra
Juve are ‘DeLigted’ apparently…
Using one of the worst puns of the summer, Juventus welcomed one of the most revered transfers of it, by capturing the signature of Matthijs De Ligt.
The Dutch centre-back is not the first Dutchmen to play for the Old Lady, but is certainly the most expensive and most hyped teenager to join the club in years.
