Juventus pushing hard for Ajax and Holland’s De Ligt
‘Tuttosport’ claim the Italians are prepared to expect his 50 million euro sticker price
You get the impression that Barcelona have abandoned it past the point of no return for De Ligt. From being a relatively obscure when the club had things under control, to ‘breaking out’ to the point that Europe’s greatest clubs are generally pursuing him.
What’s more, that implies intense rivalry for Barça. Juventus are very much situated in the battle for the Holland universal and are prepared to make a move for him.
Reports in Tuttosport say that the Serie A side are happy to assume the 50 million euro sticker price which Ajax have slapped on the player.
Juve’s maturing backline – Bonucci is presently 31 and Chiellini is 34 – implies they’re searching for crisp blood. Mino Raiola could even assume a job in the arrangement.
In any case, Juve would prefer not to pass up De Ligt and Barça have some solid adversaries for his signature.
