Nicola Legrottaglie, former Juventus player, spoke about De Ligt exclusively to TuttoJuve.com. Below is an excerpt of his words.
Legrottaglie: “De Ligt has never entered the Juventus environment, and as soon as he has a valid alternative, he will sell him”
Should he leave, how would you judge De Ligt’s three seasons in black and white?
“In terms of characteristics, I have always liked the player. I believe, however, that he has never really inserted himself into the environment. I have never seen a real leadership in him, from the outside he was perceived as a bit aloof from the group. Let’s say that he didn’t do everything to make himself loved “.
The outgoing De Ligt is from the same team as the incoming Pogba. Will this status weigh on the negotiation for its sale?
“Juventus will certainly not make a wall with the player’s entourage but will sell him once a valid alternative is ready. Or at least this is to be expected. I don’t think Juve want to get out of balance before finding a solution “.
The Dutchman would leave Juve after Chiellini’s departure. Need another big name for defense?
“It is not certain that with the great champion you will necessarily do better, especially in defense. What matters is the work of the department, which often makes up for the quality of the individual. Also because there are few strong ones. Bremer he would be a good player, of course, but in the face of an important investment. Same thing regarding Koulibaly “.
