Report: Juventus have a new number one target at CB

Juventus have a pattern of buying players from the team that beat them in the Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid in 2018, Matthijs de Ligt from Ajax in 2019, and now potentially Pau Torres from Villareal.

The Dutchman has requested to leave Turin and the Juventus management is looking for replacements. Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli was number one on the list but Napoli refuse to sell and the player does not want to join Juventus and looks set to join Chelsea. Torres is now a front runner to replace de Ligt this summer.

Management like the 25-year-old despite the price being high and contacts could be initiated within the next few days. Torres also scored against the Bianconeri like the other players Juventus bought in the past that knocked them out of the Champions League.
