All you need to know about De Ligt transfer as Chelsea rumours intensify

Sky Sport Italia confirms Chelsea are interested in Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt. Here’s all you need to know about his potential transfer.

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.

Chelsea lead Liverpool and Man United in race to sign De Ligt – report



    We should sell and get jorjinho and Mateo Kovačić from them and maybe alonso as well

    Buy bremer from torino as his replacement

  2. FORZA Juve

    I would agree to sell him for 125 millions, we would get replacement like Bremer, just need to not lose him for nothing


    More made up stuff, but if he and Skriniar were to leave and Lukaku, Pogba, Mkhitaryan, Di Maria and freebie Dybala arrive/are signed, it’ll just show again how second-rate the league has become.

  4. Mikkel

    Keep him and buy Bremer. Sell fringe players and don’t buy average or old players.

    Where is the information about the transfer FI? Clickbait at its finest

  6. Cris

    If Juventus needs or wants to sell de Ligt, they could easily go for two high level players.

    Remeber that Juve need left footed center backs since Chiellini’s departure.

  7. Manni

    @Mohammed Jorginho and alonso?! Have u seen them play? Absolutely no intensity or pace at all! These are not the type of players need or should be investing in! Agreed selling de ligt for the money mentioned is a good deal but we need to re build all areas because we are now very short of quality and depth, cutting the dead wood is one thing but who’s coming in?? It’s concerning
