Chelsea and Bayern Munich in a bidding war to sign De Ligt?

The race to sign De Ligt

According to widespread reports in England, Chelsea believe that they are getting closer to a solution to sign Matthijs De Ligt and possibly solve their defensive issues. The Dutchman is still only 22 years old, he joined Juventus for an astronomical amount of 75 Million Euros back in 2019 but since then he has failed to reach the heights that were expected of him. Now with just 2 years left on his deal, the center-back is open to moving to another club and he currently has offers from the likes of Chelsea and Bayern Munich.

Chelsea have been interested in signing De Ligt since the 2018-19 season when he captained Ajax all the way to the Champion’s League semi-finals and now they are again back in the race to sign him. They even submitted a bid of around 75 Million Euros to sign the Dutchman but Juventus rejected that offer cause they want an offer close to the 120 Million Euros release clause that the center-back has in his contract. But they know that it is very difficult for a club to pay that amount and hence they have set a price tag of 90 Million Euros for him.

Juventus certainly has the possibility to jack up the transfer fee for De Ligt as they know that Bayern Munich and Chelsea both are interested in signing him and by taking advantage of that situation they could enforce a bidding war. The Dutchman at just 22 years old could be the future of the defence of either Chelsea or Bayern Munich and so obviously it’s a move that neither club would like to miss out on. But for now his future remains in the hands of the Italian side and unless the clubs interested in signing De Ligt make an offer that they are satisfied with, the center-back will stay in Turin.
