Chance to Rub Shoulder With World Class Players
The Italian champions have an incredibly talented squad that has already shown that it has a winning mentality. A move to Turin would take De Ligt’s performances up a notch, where he will have the opportunity to showcase his talents in a more competitive league and in the Champions League.
Juventus are lucky enough to have many world-class players such as Cristiano Ronaldo at their disposal. Training with and against these players will help De Ligt’s game enormously and ensure that he continues to develop into one of the world’s best defenders.
Juventus Has a Passionate Fanbase
Similarly to what De Ligt would be used to while he was at Ajax, Juventus has a very passionate fanbase that follows their team worldwide.
The Italian giants are the most followed team in Italy and have an impressive 180 million fans globally.
Ball Playing Manager in Maurizio Sarri
The recent appointment of Maurizio Sarri shows the direction the club is looking to move. De Ligt would thrive under the Italian’s philosophy known as ‘Sarri Ball’.
Sarri is set to implement an exciting attacking-minded style of football that would focus on the retention of possession and movement of the ball through lots of quick passes along the ground.
This philosophy would complement De Ligt’s style of play well and his strengths as a defender. It could see him excel under a manager such as Sarri and solidify himself as one of the worlds best.
Juventus Are Serial Trophy Winners
Juventus are one of the worlds most successful clubs and are Italy’s most successful football team.
The Italian side has won 57 national trophies and nine European titles, including two Champions League triumphs. It is clear that Juventus have the right philosophy when it comes to winning trophies and that a move here would allow De Ligt’s biggest dreams to be realised.
They have won the league for the past eight seasons straight and will be looking to add more European honours next season.
