Matthijs de Ligt’s ‘father-in-law’, Keje Molenaar, believes the Dutch defender could stay at Juventus for another 10 years.
The 20-year-old joined Juve last summer and despite a shaky start, he’s started to come into his own having filled in for Giorgio Chiellini for much of the season.
Speaking to Tuttosport, Keje Molenaar, the father of De Ligt’s partner Annekee, suggested that the Dutchman is doing well in Turin and could remain with Juve for a while yet.
“Matthijs leaving Juventus? He is very happy in Turin, the clauses (The reported €150m included in De Ligt’s contract) do not matter. Indeed, in my opinion he could remain another 10 years, until 2030.
“Coronavirus? Matthijs’ swab was negative and consequently AnneKee did not have to do any tests.
“I must say that Juventus in these particular days has proved to be much more than a top club: it was a real family for the boys.
“We were a little anxious before the outcome, also because my daughter has been very close to Rugani’s fiancée Michela Persico in recent months, who also positive for Coronavirus.
“A beautiful friendship has been created between AnneKee and Michela: a little because of Juve and a little thanks to their dogs!”
