  1. Send him to Man U. Sure he wants to reunite with his Ajax former friends Frenkie de Jong and Donny van de Beek. Man U always pays good money.

  2. Just sell to premier league whoever the teams, they still have more resources than juve
    De ligt really has no fighting spirit like the past anymore

  3. Like how people think this is true, just chelsea trying to get to hurry and accept the initial offer on table – 40meuros plus pulisic – keep telling people chelsea fan base have already denounced khoulibaly as he’s too old for the new owners thr after younger players.
    Juve need to be firm and ask for 100meuros minimum

  4. I guess Juve Will lower and accept anything from 50 tot 75 for de Ligt otherwise they Will bever het their money back….hè Just is niet that good ter Surely Koulibaly is netter and a rock de ligt is not even in starting eleven of dutch side anymore
