I don't think it would stunt his development. We need to look at the bigger picture here and not just rely on our starting 11. What we need is a solid/reliable squad to carry us through the season. The more competent players we have, the more we will be allowed to rotate and avoid fatigue/injuries as well as compete in all cups. Lovren and Moreno are not reliable nor consistent for the past 5 years so regarding the defence, I don't see why we shouldn't bring in De Ligt if possible as well as backup for Robertson. It's about time Lovren and Moreno move on.With regards to de Ligt it's almost like the first half of the season has been forgotten. Gomez was absolutely fantastic. Yes he has had his injury problems but why would you bring in another young player in his position who would stunt his development?
