The Dutch defender sees his contract expire in June 2024 and he has a €125m release clause included in his contract starting from this summer. The clause will raise to €140m during his final year at the Allianz Stadium.
Juventus have been in talks with his representative Rafaela Pimenta over a new deal, but despite reports in Italy claiming that the two parties had reached an agreement, De Ligt recently denied that he had shaken hands with the Serie A giants.
“That is not true. The negotiations are there but at a low level. I still have a two-year contract, so I have plenty of time,” he told ESPN at the beginning of June.
“For me, it’s just important to develop myself. The fact that I am named as one of the leaders for Juventus in the coming years means that I have developed well.
“For me, it is just necessary to keep taking those steps and at the moment, it’s with Juventus.”
Juventus representatives will meet Pimenta today to finalise the details of Paul Pogba’s return to the club but are also likely to discuss De Ligt’s situation.
Football Italia understands that the defender wants a lower release clause in his new contract. Juventus don’t want to part ways with the former Ajax captain, especially considering Giorgio Chiellini’s departure.
