Juventus signed De Ligt from Ajax two years ago and they will lose him next year to Chelsea.
Juventus defender Matthujs de Ligt’s contract carries a buyout clause and now, in-form Chelsea are interested in him. According to Daily Star, the Dutch international defender has a ‘special release clause’ in his contract at Serie A giants that becomes active in the summer of 2022. The release clause will now allow clubs to sign Matthujs de Ligt for £130million from the end of the season 2021-22.
Juventus signed Dutch International from Ajax two years ago and they will lose him next year to Premier League club. The Blues are in top-class form and they are the Champions League winner. Chelsea are current favourites to win Premier League. Tuchel is keen to sign a defender as the club missed out a chance to Sevilla’s Jules Kounde in the summer.
