Torchia praises Juventus and De Ligt over Bayern Munich move

Agent Davide Torchia can understand Matthijs de Ligt leaving Juventus for Bayern Munich.

The Holland defender is joining Bayern for a fee rising to €90m.

Torchia told TMW: “The Italian championship is perhaps not the most beautiful, but it is certainly the most difficult tournament there is in Europe.

“In Serie A the pressure is considerable and thanks to this De Ligt has grown as a defender.

“He chose Bayern who are the most solid German club and the best choice he could make.”

He added: “Juve has sold and lowered the wage bill, in this way it has created liquidity and now the club can monitor the market.”
