Chelsea’s stance on Matthijs de Ligt transfer revealed after Dutchman’s Juventus future questioned by agent

De Ligt to leave Juventus?

After several impressive seasons at Ajax, which saw him captain the side, win the Eredivisie and reach the Champions League semi-finals, Matthijs de Ligt was snapped up by Juventus in the summer of 2019.

The Italian powerhouse are believed to have paid big money, around £76m, to bring the centre-back to Turin.

Since his move to Italy, however, de Ligt has not had the best of times, as Juve failed to defend their Serie A crown last term, finishing the campaign down in 4th place.

And though he scored in a 3-2 win over Spezia on Wednesday, the 22-year-old has also not had the best start to 2021/22.

In turn, the defender’s agent, Mino Raiola, has suggested that de Ligt could leave Juventus at the end of the season:

“Matthijs de Ligt is one of the best centre-backs in Europe. He could leave Juventus at the end of the season. Transfer market sometimes works like this”

These comments were swiftly followed by confirmation that de Ligt has a release clause in his contract, which is active from the summer of 2022, worth €150m:

And now, Chelsea’s stance on a possible move for the Dutch international has been revealed.

According to Calciomercato, de Ligt remains in the sights of the Blues, viewed as one of the priority targets for the club next summer.

It is added that Thomas Tuchel likes de Ligt for both his technique and quality.

No potential fee is mentioned in the report from Calciomercato, but it is hard to envision Chelsea coughing up the defender’s reported €150m release clause.
