Juventus may have a hard time tying down Matthijs de Ligt to a new deal as top European clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain all prepare to pounce.
The 22-year-old Dutch centre back had a good campaign under Massimiliano Allegri, being one of the better performers in a fairly uninspiring Bianconeri side this season. With his current contract expiring in 2024, the Old Lady are looking to tie him down to a new deal.
As reported by Corriere dello Sport, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, PSG and Barcelona have all set their sights on De Ligt and could make moves this summer. Should a concrete offer arrive, it could change Juventus’ summer market plans.
The ball is now in De Ligt and Juventus’ court. The Dutchman has an €125m release clause and he wants that removed or significantly lowered in a new contract. This also gives the Bianconeri some security from the foreign interest, although they may decide to cash in nonetheless.
