That's so fucking expensive. Weird to see such figures paid for a CB.
It is, but he's probably the best elite talent in defence there is. Was a starter at age 18 of a legendary side that made it to the EL-final. Captains his side at age 19 and is an undisputed starter for the NT (ahead of De Vrij)

If there ever will be a reason to pay 75M for a CB, then it's him.

Also as a defender you'd clearly love to play for Juventus and Allegri. He's an expert at making defenders play to their full potential.

I suppose the downside is the competition for places when a player so young probably wants to play every game

It also helps when you have quality/popular players others want to play with.

He's going to displace Skinny Legs in no time, and both him and Rugani or Romero will be our future partnership for years.

God, if we get him... :tuttosport:

We should go all in on him in the summer. No need for anyone else. Maybe try for SMS or Rabiot for free if there is an opportunity. Ramsey + De Ligt + SMS/Rabiot without selling any crucial player and it will be a hell of a mercato.

Not quite. Midfield still needs reinforcements. Ramsey only is nowhere near good enough. Rabiot is a cunt so he can fuck off to some other club with his whore of a mother.

Ndombele or maybe SMS and we're good. Remember, we lost Cheesio, are probably losing Khedira :xfinger: and The Accidental Footballer is back @ Genoa.

Ramsey, Matuidi, Bentancur, Can and Pjanic aren't enough. I know Berna can play in midfield, but he's more of an AMC than a CAM. We will need another quality midfielder.

Seems to me like another bandwagon fapfest. Has anyone actually seen this guy in play regularly against quality opposition? The price is crazy for a CB. And not that it means anything at all, but weaknesses: tackling and concentration @ whoscored sounds terrible.
