Not this one. He is a player already. As I said the things in question most with regards to 18 yo playing defensive positions - mentality - he has in abundance. Getting him next to our superstar CB's and in Seria A would accelerate his growth exponentially. Even at 60M he would cost us less than 5 mils a year amortization for a WC defender. And I am not even talking about resale value here which apart from him getting some off the field injury are :beppe: levels of profit.
Experience, concentration, physicality, confidence - lots of things I think are crucial for a CB and I don't think any 18yo CB could possibly guarantee. :D But yeah, surely the talent must be there if clubs are ready to splash

quick math
- 60m
- 5 year contract
- 2m of salary (which is still a world record for any 18 year old defender)

yearly cost: 16m

he'd be our 4th most expensive player regarding yearly costs after higgy, costa and dybala

Pretty much, joined when I was 16 and bored out of my mind "working" a summer job in a hydraulics shop. :D

Was a fun summer for Juve though, Secco made some very questionable signings on the market and for a moment we thought this guy could be good :D

This guy seems two-footed but it doesn't make sense to have Caldara, Rugani and de Ligt all as RCB.

Nevermind Benatia.
Well Rugani could fetch some serious money I guess
We can sell Rugani and trade a youngster+money for him Im sure Ajax can find someone they like in here..

Matthijs de Ligt is very close to joining Juventus. He had a tour of Allianz Stadium & was impressed. Ajax wants €50m to sell him. Juventus will work with Raiola to lower their demands. [Premium Sport]
