Asked by the Dutch public broadcaster NOS at the time whether Ronaldo wanted to know if De Ligt, 19, would join him at the Turin-based Juventus, De Ligt said: "That could well be, yes".
De Ligt caught the attention of top coaches after helping his Dutch League reach the Champions League semifinal last season.
As we reported earlier Europe's most sought after young player De Ligt looks to have chose to move to Turin in a £62 million deal, with the Italian side beating off competition from Manchester United, Barcelona and PSG to sign the highly-rated 19-year-old.
"I didn't understand him at first. But I didn't say anything", De Ligt pointed out. I was a little shocked, so I laughed.

With a bidding war imminent, French media outlet RMC has stated Madrid have been in touch with De Ligt's advisors to try and find out if he is any closer to a decision and, with that information in hand, will consider making an offer of their own.
The transfer will cost the Italian side around £62million, with personal terms yet to be finalised.
The Ajax captain himself rejected a potential move to Barcelona while Paris Saint-Germain failed to see through their interest.
But De Ligt's move to Barcelona has become complicated, allowing other clubs back into the race, and it appears he will now choose Juventus.
He played 90 minutes in 17 of 18 matches and scored three times in Ajax's Champions League campaign, which culminated in an agonising semi-final defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on away goals.
