Report – Key player shocks Juventus as he asks to leave

June 24, 2022 - 12:30 pm

Juventus has been shocked by Matthijs de Ligt after the Dutchman asked them to sell him in this transfer window.

The Bianconeri signed him in 2019 and the former Ajax captain has a contract with them that runs until 2024.

The club wants to extend his deal and has been in talks with his entourage.

Juve has been cutting costs and will likely offer him a contract on a reduced salary, but it seems he will not stay.

Corriere Dello Sport, as reported by Football Italia, claims he has asked the club to sell him in this transfer window.

It claims he spoke with the Bianconeri yesterday, and both parties failed to find an agreement, with the Dutch international insisting that he wants out of the Allianz Stadium.

Juve FC Says

De Ligt is one of the best players at Juventus right now, and we should do all we can to keep him at the club.

The former Ajax captain is a natural heir to Giorgio Chiellini, but we cannot force anyone to stay.

We are a big club, and these individuals must be willing to play for us. If De Ligt wants to continue his career at another team, we need to cash in on him now for a good fee.

    Further proof this management team has no clue what they are doing! You just pushed the only worthwhile defender you have to ask for an out. Welcome to the mid-table of Serie A. It all started with Agnelli chasing headlines with Ronaldo, and it will come to an end in 2022/2023. If this is true and he leaves, Agnelli, Arrivabene, Nedved and Cherubini should all be fired within 24 hours. Wouldn’t surprise me if Pogba changes his mind, or Vlahovic and Chiesa look for outs as well.

        100% agree with you about Ronaldo and Agnelli. But it doesn’t absolve the rest of this management team. It’s been 1 mistake after another for a few years now. Agnelli wanted to have the supermodel at the party, instead of the beautiful next door girl who would do anything g for you. What’s on the field determines success, not how many followers you have.

    Sell him and reinvest in young players. Get Zaniolo, Kostic, Raspadori, Skriniar. We already have Gatti, so it’s not as bad as it looks. If there is a good time to rebuilt and revamp the team, than this is the reight moment

    I dont understand why everybody is upset or shocked. I knew from the begining this guy was only going to be here for the short term. No offence to anybody but serie is not the go to league anymore. In case you didnt notice. This was always a stepping stone. He wanted to learn from one of the best. Now he is gone and so will be deligt. End of story. Anyone who beleived he was going to play his career here is delusional. He was always going to end up in the EPL. The only bad thing for juve is they wont really make the profit they were hoping for when they baught him in 2019. Because of a little thing called COVID. Come on people Juve cant afford these wages anymore. They just wanted to extend so that maybe things will be back to pre covid finances even for other teams. Then they could make more money. But no one knows. It could be even worse in a couple of years for finances. This is why you have get italian players who want to stay in italy. Like ive always said. You think chiellini, bonucci, del piero, buffon, marchisio, pirlo, gattuso, totti, maldini etc. didnt get offers from the real madrids of the world and EPL. They all say they did. But they chose to stay in italy because thats what they love. They love their teams and are loyal to their teams. It goes the other way too. You know how many wanted Gerard. Not just chelsea, even ancelloti for milan. Shop local people!

      A perfect example is Miretti. Not only is he Italian but he is from just outside Turin. Like Marchisio. Also like Marchisio he spent his youth in juves academy. The way he talks about juve, you know he will give his all and total loyalty. Just like Buffon, Del Piero, Nedved, Trezeget etc., stayed with Juve during the forced relegation. Those guys all could have forced an exit like Cannavaro and Ibra. But they didnt. If they all left, Juve probably would have taken longer to recover and maybe even would have been stuck serie b even longer. So when you get guys like miretti and even fagioli and ranocchia dont f*** around is my advice to juve. I know that money today speaks louder a loyaly is out the window but loyalty must also be shown by the team by giving them the chance. At least play them in cup games and other low profile games. Like klopp does at liverpool. He was damned by the english supporters and media because he was fielding teams almost fully of academy players for the cup games. But thats what you do to gain their trust and see what they can do. In turn giving all your stars a break. You dont show trust, they will always f up because its all about confidense. And todays youth needs to be coddled more then ever. It is the way it is. The culture has changed. Maybe that is what allegri and agnelli etc., dont understand.

    The only shocking thing is that there are people who are truly shocked by this. Anyways to be honest I don’t think he’s as good as he was hyped to be either. So not a terrible loss either.
