Matthijs de Ligt's contract runs until 2024 and Juventus want to extend it by any means possible, but there is no agreement at the moment. And it does not look like there will be in the near future. Therefore, the Bianconero team is starting to study scenarios to sell the player this summer for a considerable price.

The reason that has stalled the renewal of the international with the Netherlands and Juventus is the termination clause, which the player wants to be at 70 million euros, while the board does not want to let the defender escape for less than 100 million.

Thus, both player and club are beginning to seriously consider the option of parting ways this summer. The most powerful clubs of the Old Continent are very attentive to this move and the Premier League is already demanding the player. Specifically, Chelsea and Manchester United start as favorites to close the incorporation of the former Ajax center-back, according to 'Corriere dello Sport'.

Tuchel or Ten Hag?

On the one hand, the Blues' priority is to reinforce the defense, which has been affected by the departure of Rüdiger and Christensen, while the continuity of Marcos Alonso or Azpilicueta is still up in the air. As for the Red Devils, coach Erik ten Hag is keen to reunite with a player who already shone with him at Ajax.
