However, with the financial effects of the COVID-19 virus hurting every club across the world, Juventus have been no different.

Yet despite all those rumours, the 22-year-old admitted that he has no intentions of leaving Turin as he’s very happy with the club and feels appreciated both on and off the field. De Ligt further added that he also has no clue why he is being linked with a move to Barcelona because the rumours make no sense.
"I am very happy at Juve. I feel like a fish in water. I feel good on the pitch and appreciated. Would they let me go? There are plenty of clubs that have money problems, but you should ask the club,” De Ligt said, reported ESPN.
"I don’t know. These [Barcelona rumours] make no sense now. That is not important to me and nobody has informed me about it."
