Juventus are set to meet with Raiola over De Ligt

De Ligt

Juventus are reportedly expected to sit down with agent Mino Raiola to go over the future of Federico Bernardeschi and Matthijs de Ligt.

Calciomercato.com reports the Old Lady is scheduled to meet with Raiola, who’s the agent of Bernardeschi and De Ligt, as the market looms.

Bernardeschi’s deal with the Bianconeri expires in June 2022, but the Bianconeri are reportedly hoping he will accept a significant wage cut.

Juventus ready to renew with Bernardeschi?

With De Ligt, however, the will is reportedly to continue together at all costs and Juventus have no intentions of parting ways with the defender, who arrived in the summer of 2019.

But Barcelona have been linked with the 22-year-old centre-back since his arrival at the Allianz Stadium, as the Old Lady snapped him up from Ajax for €85.5m.

Frenkie de Jong moved to Barcelona the same year and the two were expected to reunite at some point in their careers.

The outlet claims Barca have not given up on the Holland international, who has played 87 competitive games with the Bianconeri.

De Ligt, capped 31 times by the Netherlands, prepares for the crucial World Cup Qualifier against Norway in Rotterdam tonight.

His contract with Juventus expires in June 2024, but the rumour of a possible move is fuelled by the activation of a €120m release clause.

The clause will be in play from next summer and Juventus still feel confident regarding the youngster’s future, also due to the financial situation in European football post-COVID.

However, the report claims Juventus don’t exclude entering negotiations over a new deal for De and thus extend his contractual ties to Continassa.

  1. Seriously FI if i have to put up with the pop up video, please for Gods sake change it up a bit…..enough of Goran Pandev’s Academy in northern Macedonia

  2. They should sell Berna. Lets face it he never lived up to the hype and is slightly above average player at best. That is if and when he chooses to work hard which is almost never. He would do much better at a midtable ish club with lower expectations. De ligt must stay at all costs.
