I think the time for him to step down has already come especially after his ACL injury

We need to put De Ligt and Demiral as a starter, maybe with Danilo or Bonucci in 3 man defense
I only want to see him retire with us winning something precious. He and Buffon deserve that farewell

These are our over 30 years or soon to be 30
I will only keep Woj from this list probably Cuadrado for his versatility and maybe Danilo if he does not have suitors

Buffon retire, Chiellini retire, Sami out of contract, CR7 (we will pay him too much for his contribution and he keep to take one spot for other young players to improve, we better make Dybala our most valuable players and built around Dybala), Aaron Ramsey as he injured too much and can't hit consistent form, Alex Sandro (i feel the same because he injured too much lately and his form starting to decline too)

Like Ramsey, you just can’t rely on him as a starter as you’ll never have any resemblance of continuity, which is especially important in a backline. For me, he’s now the backup to the backup (Demiral) and hopefully he does the right thing and retires after the season.

No chance Demiral playing ahead of de Ligt. When he returns he will be starter along Bonucci and Danilo/Sandro. If we play four at the back Demiral - de Ligt partnership wuold be nice.

yeah I see the backline as Danilo-Bonucci-De Ligt-Sandro when everyone is fit. And I’m also assuming Pirlo meant it when he said it’ll always be a back four, because I still think we could run a traditional three man backline ala the bbc days.

I think he knows that as well, he's a smart guy, but he'll want to complete the season. We should have De Ligt back soon anyway.
Definitely time to retire soon. Still has the know-how and the experience to be a top class CB at this level, but his body is sadly starting to breakdown. Can’t be relied on anymore.

I wonder if we’ll see Alex Sandro deputise in the LCB position this season?

An absolute beast and the one of the last of a dying breed of no nonsense defenders who put their body on the line every time. It's no surprise that his body is breaking down but it's such a shame.
