Juventus are not interested in Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic, assured director of sport Fabio Paratici, but he believes Matthijs de Ligt "will become the best defender in the world."
The Croatian international has fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou this season and has been repeatedly linked with moves away, specifically to Juve and Inter.
“We have a great team and are not looking for reinforcements at the moment. We are strong in every position,” Paratici told ESPN.
The Juventus chief was then asked to comment on Patrick Kluivert’s remarks that De Ligt regrets his €75m move to the club last summer.
“I don’t see it like that. He will soon become the best defender in the world.”
