Star player has received a €12 million per year contract from Chelsea

Matthijs de Ligt, a defender for Juventus, has been linked with a transfer to Chelsea, and it seems the 22-year-old has moved up the Blues’ priority list of players to sign.

Chelsea has intensified its chase of De Ligt as the Blues want to replace Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger.

In contrast to the club’s original offer of €46 million-plus for Timo Werner, Chelsea has reportedly made a proposal of €80 million for the 22-year-old center-back.

The international from the Netherlands developed into one of Europe’s most promising young players while playing for Ajax before joining Juventus in 2019.

De Ligt contributed to Juventus’ victories in the Coppa Italia and the Serie A after joining the team in a €75 million transfer.

De Ligt is reportedly a great favorite of Thomas Tuchel, who views the 22-year-old as a potential long-term successor for the ailing Thiago Silva.

De Ligt was a perfect fit for Thomas Tuchel because of his strength, poise under pressure, and perseverance.

Juventus is said to have set a €90 million asking price for the former Ajax star, and Chelsea’s latest €80 million offer for him is near to that figure. According to rumors, Juventus is likely to accept this offer.

Chelsea made touch with Juventus once again on Monday in an effort to finalize the deal for De Ligt, according to Chelsea reporter Vince, who posted the following on Twitter.

“A 5-year deal for €12–13 million net with bonuses is ready for the defender, with an option for a sixth.”
Bayern Munich has also been mentioned as a potential suitor for De Ligt, although the Bundesliga team has not yet submitted a proposal.

According to certain sources, De Ligt is keener on moving to Chelsea.
