Bonucci: De Ligt is the best in the world now

The Juventus stalwart thinks his new team-mate can help the club reach their goals in Serie A and the Champions League

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci believes his side have signed ‘the best young player in the world’ in Matthijs de Ligt.

After finally completing his €75 million (£68m/$84m) from Ajax, 19-year-old De Ligt will be expected to deliver straight away as Juventus go in search of a Champions League trophy to compliment their domestic dominance.

Bonucci, 31, established himself as one of the best centre-backs in the world during his first spell in Turin, and he believes De Ligt can also reach the very top level.
