A fierce struggle between Chelsea and Bayern Munich for the inclusion of De Ligt, Italian press reports revealed a fierce struggle between Chelsea and Bayern Munich to sign Dutch defender Matthias de Ligt, as the duo opened the line of negotiations with his Italian club, Juventus, but the Bianconeri has not yet reached an agreement with either club.
The Dutch defender is seeking a summer exit from Juventus, and the Serie A giants are reported to have received offers from both clubs.
De Ligt has a release clause of 120 million euros included in his contract, but neither Chelsea nor Bayern seem willing to offer that amount, and Juventus can accept an offer of 90-100 million euros.
Football Italia reported that De Ligt wants to join Bayern Munich, having already held talks with the club in 2019.
