As you know, last summer, “Barcelona” was actively trying to buy Matthias de Ligt, but the Dutchman finally chose to play for “Juventus.”
Nevertheless, the Catalan club is not giving up on the young star and is still negotiating with “Bianconeri.”
On the other hand, the Turinese want to buy the young star of “Barca,” Arthur Melo. According to Mundo Deportivo, “Juventus” are ready to let De Ligt go in exchange for the Brazilian in “Blaugrana.”
It is also known that the future hopes of “Bianconeri” are based on Matthias. It’s interesting how things will turn out.
De Ligt: That’s why I chose Juventus
As you know, the information was spread today, according to which “Barcelona” is still thinking about Matthias de Ligt, the Dutch defender of “Juventus” in Turin.
Blaugrana were actively involved with the then-captain of Ajax last summer, but Matthias opted for Bianconeri.
In an interview with YouTube channel Foot Truck, de Ligt spoke about the reasons for his choice.
“No, I didn’t come to Juve because of Cristiano Ronaldo. This is not the main reason. I had a lot of time to choose which club I wanted to pursue my career with, and I made the best decision.
I was told at Juventus that I was brought here because I know how to handle the pressure. They trust me because of what I was doing at Ajax. I’m happy in Turin, “said Matthias.
