Capello: 'De Ligt to Juventus will finish the Serie A race soon'

Former Italian coach said that the purchase of midfielder De Ligt will make Juventus become too strong compared to rivals.

According to Italian press, Juventus has reached a transfer agreement De Ligt. The Italian team will pay about $ 80 million for Ajax and for the 19-year-old midfielder to earn $ 13.6 million per season. Before that, De Ligt refused to join Barca because he only received a salary of 12 million.

As captain, De Ligt led Ajax into the Champions League semi-final last season and recruited the Netherlands into the Nations League final. He has a special talent to score goals, which is evidenced by a fixture of a 2-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Last season, with the participation of Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus won the Serie A eighth consecutive. They were 11 points better than Napoli's second place, 21 points against Atalanta's third team and fourth Inter Milan.

Capello further commented on the Serie A race next season: "When talking about the other candidates I talk about Napoli and Inter. The Milan, Roma and Lazio teams will not have the strength or financial potential to join the competition. I have read the news that midfielder Manolas has moved from Roma to Napoli, and he and the center-back are available Kalidou Koulibaly, with some other quality enhancements, Napoli will be a very strong candidate.
