The heart of the matter
It has been confirmed that Sassuolo have officially signed the two players from Juve.
The Turin-based club has been highly rated to sign Ajax defender, Matthijs de Ligt, and these transfers out of the club could make way for his arrival. It is also reported that following these transfers, Merih Demiral is edging closer to completing a move to the Serie A champions.
With stars from Aaron Ramsey to Rabiot all joining Juventus, the Italian club is showing its intention to achieve more than just domestic glory. They want to be able to compete against the likes of Liverpool, Barcelona and more in European football.Published 01 Jul 2019, 05:32 IST
