Details behind Juve’s contract offer to De Ligt

by | May 20, 2022 13:04

Juventus have offered Matthijs de Ligt a new contract in a bid to tie him down amid serious interest from the Premier League and Spain.

The 22-year-old Dutch defender has been one of the better performers in a lethargic Bianconeri side this season, with only a few mistakes marring an otherwise satisfactory campaign by the former Ajax man. De Ligt’s current contract expires in 2024 and top clubs are now starting to circle around him ahead of the summer transfer window.

As reported by TuttoMercatoWeb, Juventus have offered De Ligt a new contract as they look to secure his future. Two possibilities are currently in place; the first sees him renew until 2026 with the same salary of €8m net plus add-ons, whilst the second would extend his deal until 2025 with a slightly lower salary, but a significantly lower release clause.

The Dutch defender is currently evaluating the offer and there is currently no agreement in place, with talks ongoing regarding the potentially lower salary and new release clause.

    Why would he reduce his salary?
    He is young, he doesn’t lack suitors, why would he extend with lesser salary? It’s just doesn’t make sense

    I agree. Are Juve trying to nudge him out the door like with Dybala?

    Juve still clueless when it comes to contracts.
