Last campaign they beat Liverpool 3-1 to take the trophy in Kiev. They have also beaten Juventus and Atletico Madrid in those three campaigns.

Marcelo discussed the win against Liverpool on Monday and revealed Cristiano Ronaldo had already discussed his likely exit with him before that final.

‘Damn, we were training for the final and he told me: ‘I’m leaving,” Marcelo revealed in an interview with Esporte Interactivo.

‘I realise that I have lied to you about this before, but that is because I had to.

‘Would I move to Juventus? They are a great club, but I have a contract with Real Madrid.’

Ajax are currently second in the Eredivisie table. They will be able to call on young prospects Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong. 

The latter has already agreed to join Real’s fierce rivals Barcelona in the summer.
