Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been told he has a player in his team that is better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea, has previously revealed Chelsea star Hakim Ziyech is better than Ronaldo and Messi.
When asked about his future in 2018 during his Ajax days, de Ligt told Sky Italia just how much he liked playing with the Moroccan.
“I don’t know what will happen yet,” he said. “Now I am focused only on Ajax – but Italy is a beautiful place and Serie A is an excellent championship.
“Who do I prefer between Cristiano Ronaldo to Juve and Messi to Barcelona? Hakim Ziyech.”
While De Ligt rates Ziyech highly, having played together with the Moroccan international at Ajax, Chelsea boss Tuchel seems to need some convincing on the midfielder.
