De Ligt Manager Blasts Media Over Transfer Saga

De Ligt to Barcelona Talk Bullshit :- Raiola

The agent of Matthijs de ligt  "Mino Raiola", has hit out at those in the media who reported earlier in the transfer window that his client would be signing for Barcelona as he closes in on a move to Juventus.

De Ligt who landed in Turin (Juventus) on Tuesday evening and underwent a medical on Wednesday morning ahead of completing a move from Ajax that will cost the Bianconeri €75 million (£68m/$84m) if all add-ons and bonus requirements are  added.

The Netherlands international had been heavily linked to join Barcelona for much of the season and follow his fellow Ajax youngster Frenkie de Jong to Camp Nou.

When asked about the Barcelona saga.
His agent said:-
"Barcelona? You all wrote so much bullsh*t!" Raiola told reporters in Turin when asked whether De Ligt was making the right choice in joining the Italian champions.

"It’s not a question of who wanted him most, but Juve are the best team for him. For a defender it is important to come to Italy. If you are to become the greatest in the world, it is a necessary stage.

"He's the number one among the youngsters. He's like [Pavel] Nedved, maybe more than him, for his mentality and he's like Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] for his ambition. He has it all."
