Italian giants Juventus have reportedly ruled out selling defender Matthijs de Ligt but Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala may be sacrificed as the club’s financial losses tip £98m.
The Old Lady, like all clubs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, have been subject to heavy losses following fans’ absence from stadiums.
The Serie A title contenders are reportedly considering offloading at least one big-name star in an attempt to recoup some of the £98m lost.
However, according to a recent report from Calciomercato, one player who will not be leaving Turin is 21-year-old de Ligt.
Having signed from Ajax in 2019 in a deal worth a whopping £76.95m, de Ligt is widely regarded as a high-value asset.
However, despite this, Juventus are not expected to cash-in on the Dutchman and could instead sanction the sale of Ronaldo or Dybala.
The outlet’s report claims that Juventus have already informed de Ligt’s super-agent Mino Raiola of their plans and assured the representative that his star-client will remain in Turin for the foreseeable.
