Bonucci: De Ligt is Juve's future

Leonardo Bonucci says summer signing Matthijs de Ligt is the future of Juventus.

The pair started together in Juve's 0-0 draw with Fiorentina at the weekend, keeping a clean sheet in a game where the Serie A champions were generally second best.

"With time we will improve: he is young and has time to adapt and become one of the best defenders in the world," Bonucci said in a press conference. "With [Merih] Demiral and [Daniele] Rugani, De Ligt can be the future of Juventus."
