Dutch international looks to push for a deal with Bayern Munich ahead of other clubs

Matthijs De Ligt

Matthijs De Ligt is one of the most sought-after defenders of this transfer window. Multiple top European clubs like Bayern Munich and Chelsea have been linked with a move for the defender.

Juventus has already parted ways with Giorgio Chiellini this summer. The club is reportedly willing to let the Dutchman go for a fee in the region of €100 million. However, the Bavarians have not matched the asking price of the Old Lady yet.

Chelsea, the other suitor for the Dutch international is said to be willing to splash an amount close to the asking price. However, the deal still seems complicated for the English club.

Juventus is waiting for either of the clubs to make their official bid and settle the future of the Dutch international as soon as possible.

Matthijs De Ligt wants Bayern Munich ahead of other clubs

The Dutchman is interested in signing for the German giants ahead of other clubs. In an attempt to force through a move to Bayern Munich, the agent of Matthijs De Ligt has ceased negotiations with other clubs.

The agent has also stopped communicating with Chelsea. De Ligt is a fan of the style of play employed by the Bavarians as per multiple reports. He was also close to joining the German side back in 2019 before moving to Juventus.

Julian Nagelsmann has stamped his authority on the Bavarians and De Ligt is reportedly attracted to the manager’s footballing philosophy. The Dutch international has made it clear to his agents that he wants to transfer to Bayern Munich as a priority over other clubs.

However, the transfer fiasco has turned out to be tricky for Chelsea. The club is still not able to secure adequate replacements for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. The rejection from Matthijs De Ligt means that the club will have to swiftly move to secure alternate targets.
