What has been said about Demiral?

Turkish football expert Emre Sarigul compared Demiral to a Man United legend back in 2019.

“Demiral was a Vidić fan growing up and he is a similar stature to the former Manchester United man," he said in 2019, per Juve.com.

"The Turkish international towers above most players, is physical, strong in the air and surprisingly technical with the ball for such a big man. He is a natural leader and cool under pressure.”
