Bayern Munich have agreed personal terms with Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt, in a bid worth over €80million, according to Fabrizio Romano, a football columnist.
De Ligt has been the subject of plenty of transfer speculation, with CaughtOffside columnist Fabrizio Romano covering the whole saga. Romano confirmed to CaughtOffside that Chelsea did have an interest in De Ligt, with Thomas Tuchel looking to add defensive reinforcements this summer.
The Dutch defender, who regularly plays in a back three for his country, would have slotted in well in the Chelsea defence.
Now, Romano has provided another update on De Ligt’s situation, and it’s bad news for those who wanted to see the defender plying his trade at Stamford Bridge.
Romano confirmed that Bayern agreed to personal terms with De Ligt for a five-year deal, and talks between the German club and Juventus are getting closer to completion.
De Ligt, a 22-year-old who started playing professional football seven years and a move to Bayern Munich could provide him with the opportunity to unleash his potential.
