    Should build the defence around him. Hands down our best CB

    Only thing with this guy is injuries. he goes in hard and risks himself as much as the opposition. (unlike those cowardly tackles that pose only a threat to the tackled).

    This. I can't believe there wasn't a line forming to sign him. I don't particularly enjoy the defensive side of games, but watching this guy defend is as good as watching a worldie. You see the ball coming to an opposition player and Cuti isn't even in the frame and boom half a second later he pops up from the side of the screen and wins the ball. Or how he dispossesses player when you think they have the ball firmly out of his reach. And his ball skills, just amazing. Has to be one of the top 5 all around defenders in the world right now and he's still only 24.

    This signing turned my immediate skepticism of Paratici (remember reading about how things weren't always so rosy at Juve when he first arrived here) into tepid optimism. After the January window, that optimism grew and if he continues to have a good summer window, I might have to get a shirt with his name on it. One more CB that's as impactful as Romero and hopefully that means we can at least cruise into the CL places next season.

    He's ready. Him and Kane have the best passing range and vision in the squad. We need the other CBs to learn and apply. Imagine the threat of initiating an attack through a crowd of players across the back three.

    I'm so used to CBs that can't dribble or pass that everytime I see him do either it makes me nervous!

    Don’t worry, even if VVD has his worst season and Romero is outstanding, the media will still say VVD was the best centre back and no one will praise Romero.

    Yep, same as for Son / Salah. But under the radar will suit us fine.

    Think son will get plenty of attention this year, kulu will replace him as the class but ignored spurs player.

    What a player, that Milan team was full of great players but he was the one I looked out for, had everything you want in a defender.

    Maldini was a genius but Baresi was an artist too. Their back 4 with Costacurta and Tassotti is the best defensive unit I’ve ever seen. Woolwich had a great back 4 at that time but nothing compared to those guys. If you loved watching great defending, these were the best at it.

    He already seems to be going that way. It’s only fantasy football but people are losing their minds over Luis Diaz but not focusing on Kulusevski’s numbers last season as… ‘he will be rotated due to Richarlison’… forgetting that Liverpool players will also be rotated.

    Rijkaard…

    amazing team really over that late 80’s / early 90’s period. Would have been a good game v Peps Barca.

    The Nesta, Cannavaro, Zambrotta, Pannucci back line was also stellar.
