This summer, one of the big serials was starred by Matthijs of Ligt, the defence by which half Europe was had to bid and that finally finish in the Juventus of Turín in return of 75 million euros more others so many in variables that elevate the operation to almost a total of 90. Nevertheless, his first steps like bianconero are being in false.

Recently, Giorgio Chiellini lesionó of gravity, something that gave the opportunity to Of Ligt to be headline at the side of Leonardo Bonucci. However, this player that the Barça descartó for asking a wage desorbitado to his scarce 19 years, is having performances frankly bad in his first parties and is remaining signalled in the team of Maurizio Sarri.

This weekend, the Juventus won to the Naples (4-3) thanks to a goal postrero of Koulibaly in own door. The problem was that, in two of the goals of the napolitanos, Of Ligt remained portrayed: first, it lost the mark of Kostas Manolas in a played of strategy that finish in goal and, later, Hirving Lozano left him by the floors with a dribbling to mark a new so much.

In spite of his errors, Maurizio Sarri wanted to defend him in room of press. "You can concede goals, but no three in 16 minutes. Perhaps we feel us relaxed with the 3-0 in favour. Of Ligt still has to adapt to a demanding league like the Series To. Even so, it is very intelligent and will learn fast. It did a very good hour", aimed the Italian technician.

The Barça him descartó by expensive

For the Barça, the arrival of Of Ligt did not correspond to a need, but to an opportunity. Ernesto Valverde already has of four head offices in the staff​ and a fifth had forced to stir up. In the moment in which the price and the requirements salariales of Of Ligt shot , the culés did not move of his initial proposal.

To all this, does not be necessary to leave overlook the obsession of the Juventus of Turín for doing with his services. Of Ligt received in 2018 the trophy Golden Boy in Turín and, since, began to fraguar the traspaso. The 'vecchia signora' positioned well, knew to convince to the player with his sportive project and could offer him a supercontrato thanks to the Italian fiscal advantages.
