Matthijs De Ligt turns 21 today: a birthday that the Dutch defender of the Juve it will pass “under the knife” since it will come in the day (in all probability this morning) shoulder surgery in Rome to solve the joint problem that tormented him in the last period of the championship, the Juventus center landed in the capital last night and with him were his girlfriend Annekee Molenaar and doctor Luca Stefanini, doctor of the Juventus club: after surgery De Ligt will have to follow a rehabilitation protocol of about three months. His return to the field is therefore expected in November.
A inconvenience for Pirlo that for the entire preparation phase and the first month of the championship, perhaps something more, he will not be able to count on the Dutchman. The return of demiral it is certainly comforting news in this sense, as well as that of ChielliniBoth, however, have come back from a season marked by a very serious knee injury. Certainty in this case is Bonucci, with Rugani who, on the other hand, is unlikely to be reconfirmed: this is why, among the many needs, Juve could also face another central defender on the market who can numerically give Pirlo room to maneuver.
