The Juventus star has warned the Dutch defender’s former team-mate to show respect to the Serie A side following his move to Bayern Munich.
What did Leonardo say about Matthijs de Ligt?
Matthijs de Ligt made the Bundesliga champions in a summer transfer worth around €80m. Dutch player Matthijs de Ligt suggested that he was ready to leave Italy at the end of last season while negotiations for a contract extension at the Bianconeri continued, saying he would decide whether to renew or look elsewhere.
When asked if the Italian footballer was surprised by the departure of the Dutch player from Turin, he said no, because some of his statements made it clear that he did not want to stay in the Bianconeri. But according to Leonardo Bonucci, he thinks that the basis of everything is respect, the group that Matthijs de Ligt was with for three years helped him grow and the company invested in him.
The Italian wants the best for him, but certain phrases spoken in the national team were not very nice. They talked about it after the holidays and de Ligt got it. Leonardo Bonucci says that Bayern are a great club, but he is not sure that they are destined to win in the top team.
Leonardo talks about Angel Di Maria
While one key Dutch defender left this summer, some big signatures have been added to Massimiliano Allegri’s players ahead of the upcoming season. South American player Gleison Bremer came from Torino, while French footballer Paul Pogba returned on a free transfer, as did Di Maria.
Leonardo Bonucci is particularly excited about the arrival of former Real Madrid and PSG player Angel Di Maria’s, saying that for the qualities he has and his career, he has been greatly underestimated. According to the Italian, Angel is the most complete Serie A player, because he adds experience to his talent, which, fortunately, Bianconeri chose.
