In his first Juventus press conference, Demiral said: "I am very happy to be here. I know that Juventus is a very important team, for me it is a great fortune to play here. I hope to be able to adapt as quickly as possible to the new team and the new environment. Reaching this team and seeing the training facilities impressed me a lot."

"Being the first Juve Turk is an honor, I will try to be a model. so strong is an honor and I would like to show everyone that by working hard you can reach important goals like I did."

On Chiellini, he said: "Playing with those I followed as a child is an honor, Chiellini is helping me a lot. Bonucci is also very close to me, I hope to gain some of their experience."
