Former Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has warned Alvaro Morata and Matthijs de Ligt about leaving Juventus for Barcelona. Pjanic made the move in 2020 but had a disastrous time in Barcelona and ended up joining Besiktas on loan. Xavi has had Morata and de Ligt on his radar as he looks to rebuild Barcelona. De Ligt joined the Italian club in 2019 but his agent Mino Raiola recently revealed that he could be ready for a new challenge.
“Morata has had an amazing career so far,” former Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic said. “He played for big clubs like Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, and Juventus. Sometimes players need motivation, but I would think twice before leaving a club where I feel well. Morata knows what to do, Barcelona hired Xavi, a coach who knows the club really well, I don’t know the details, but I’ve always heard that Morata was happy at Juventus even if when Barcelona call you always need to think about it.”
“De Ligt has three years left in his contract with Juventus, he has the right commitment, but I don’t know if Barcelona is interested,” he added. “He made a great choice by deciding to join Juventus and work with Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini, he is happy at Juventus and when you are happy, it’s better not to leave. We’ll see if he will have the motivation to leave. I told Alvaro that he is staying here, he is not leaving Juventus, end of the story.”
