Club Formally Respond To Mino Raiola Saying Matthijs De Ligt Would Never Join Them

Mino Raiola has received an official response from a Bundesliga side after saying Matthijs de Ligt would never join them.

Super agent Raiola discussed his client de Ligt's future in an interview earlier this week and he thinks it could be time for a change.

De Ligt is currently with Serie A outfit Juventus and when asked about a move, Raiola made a point of naming one club he'd never join.

He told NOS when asked about a potential 'next step': “I think we all know which clubs to mention here, and with all due respect, not clubs like Fortuna Dusseldorf. We will see this summer. Premier League? It can be Barca too, or Real Madrid or PSG."

Fortuna are currently 13th in 2. Bundesliga after being relegated from the Bundesliga in 2020, but they've had some fun with Raiola's claims.

Officially responding on Twitter, they said: "So no Fortuna for De Ligt, but ...after all, Mino knows us."


De Ligt joined Juventus from Ajax in 2019 after helping his childhood team to the Champions League semi-finals.

The Dutch international also won the Golden Boy award in 2018 and will become one of the world's best defenders.

He's won Serie A and the Coppa Italia with Juventus since his arrival, but Max Allegri's side are currently struggling.

Last summer saw them lose Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United and they sit in seventh place, 12 points off leaders Inter Milan.

De Ligt started and played the full 90 minutes on Saturday night as Juventus ran out 2-0 winners over Bologna.

Goals from Alvaro Morata and Juan Cuadrado in either half secured victory as the 'Old Lady' chase a top four spot.

In Europe, they managed to top Champions League Group H after beating Malmo and seeing Chelsea draw 3-3 Zenit on the final matchday.
