Matthijs de Ligt answers why he didn’t want to join Barcelona

The new Juventus signing, Matthijs de Ligt, spoke today why he decided to join the Italian Lega Serie A champions and not the Spanish La Liga kings.

The Dutch prodigy was hoping to meet his future employers in the Champions League final this season, however, both teams suffered shock exits in the semi-finals.

“It’s been a fantastic season, although I would have liked to have said goodbye with three titles, but it wasn’t to be.

“I watched the match between Liverpool and Barcelona. I don’t know if they need me; had they been in the final, they could have won the treble.”
