Matthijs de Ligt: I'm very happy at Juventus

Matthijs de Ligt insists he's happy at Juventus.

The defender has been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent weeks.

“My first feeling was happiness: Juventus bought me, one of the biggest clubs in the world," he told Tuttosport.

“Compared to life at Ajax, everything was different. Let's say the first big difference that struck me was the international stature of the club.

“Then there was the welcome given to me by my new teammates, an exceptional group of lads.

“All of them were really nice to me and helpful. They immediately made me feel part of a family.

“I'm very happy at Juventus. I found out during this period without football that someone made up a few things about me.

“I'm really happy to be here, training every day with extraordinary players. I have the desire to improve every day so, yes, I'm happy."
