Juventus waiting for Chelsea’s mega offer for De Ligt

Chelsea aren’t interested in giving up in their chase of Matthijs de Ligt and Juventus are now waiting for them to submit a convincing offer.

The Blues are desperate to sign some top defenders this summer following the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, two players who both left on free transfers, and they’ve had their sights set on the Dutch centre back for a while now, believing he’s ready for the Premier League.

As reported by Calciomercato.com, Federico Cherubini is a big fan of Timo Werner but the Juventus owners would prefer to complete a definitive sale without any players in exchange.

At the moment, Chelsea seem inclined to pay around €65-70m but Juventus are pushing for €110m, giving a slight discount on his €120m release clause.

The Bianconeri are already considering possible replacements and topping the list currently is Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Torino’s Gleison Bremer, although the latter has promised himself to rivals Inter.

  1. Keep dreming, no bid has been made for him and everyone knows de igt wants out, juve need to sell – so chelsea will play the waiting game to reduce the price, we wont be sold for 110m euros – if it is just cash then 90m euros imo

  2. an overrated player. nobody pays more than 80m for him but Juve. hope to see him leaving and investing the money in some Italian or fresh talents.

  3. @Mohammed: Sure thing. Besides, if you wait a little bit then more teams from PL whose transfer dealings aren’t going to plan will emerge. The problem for Juve is how to replace the guy once he’s sold with no obvious choices available on the transfer market.

  4. de Ligt will thrive in England. It is more physical, less concentration is needed and he will find a coach who might be able to unlock his potential.

  5. Can’t hold on to a player who wants to leave. But Juve will have some problems now in defense. He was the only defender they had with enough stamina to push up and down the field after Chiellini stoped playing consistently.

  6. lol fish and chips english long ball. So true and the only reason their league is the best is simply down to foreigners. Without them they would still be hoofing the ball route one style up the field.
