De Ligt 'in love with Turin'

Matthijs de Ligt and his girlfriend AnneKee “are in love with Turin and Italy,” said the Juventus defender would gladly stay “for five or 10 years.”

The Dutch international has been in lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic, as three teammates – Daniele Rugani, Blaise Matuidi and Paulo Dybala – tested positive.

“Matthijs tested negative, so consequently AnneKee has not needed any test,” her father Keye Molenaar told Tuttosport.

“I have to say that Juventus over these difficult days have shown themselves to be far more than a top club. It was a real family for the kids.

“There was a little anxiety at first, especially as my daughter has become very close with Michela, Rugani’s girlfriend, who is also positive for Coronavirus.

“Aside from this being a tricky time, AnneKee and Matthijs are really in love with Turin and Italy. This is their first real home together and they’re not missing Amsterdam.

“They are so in love with Turin that they could stay for five years, maybe 10.”
