Bayern Munich agree fee with Juventus to sign defender De Ligt

Bayern Munich have agreed a fee of 70 million euros to sign Dutch central defender Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus, according to reports in German media.

Bild and Sport1 claimed the fee for the 22-year-old would be followed by an additional 10 million euros in bonuses.

Bayern will use the proceeds from the transfer of Polish striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, estimated at more than 45 million euros, to help finance the transfer.

“It’s true that we have had discussions. De Ligt is a very, very interesting player,” Bayern executive director Olivier Kahn told Bild at the weekend.

De Ligt joined Juve in 2019 following his role in helping Ajax reach an improbable Champions League semi-final – a run which also included victory over the Bianconeri in the last eight.

At the time, he had been a reported target for Bayern, as well as some of the leading Premier League teams, but opted for a move to Juve.

In Turin, he was won a Serie A title, Coppa Italia and Supercoppa in his three seasons with the club – only once finishing a campaign trophyless.

But suffered frustration in the Champions League with last-16 eliminations at the hands of Lyon, FC Porto and Villarreal.
