Juventus are willing to lower their asking price for Chelsea target Matthijs De Ligt from €120m to €110m.
The Dutch defender has asked to leave the club this summer and isn’t willing to sign a new deal. Juventus’ CEO, Maurizio Arrivabene has confirmed that De Ligt doesn’t want to stay at the club beyond 2022.
Several top clubs are keen on signing the Dutchman, especially Chelsea who see him as their top target in defence. Multiple reports suggest that the Blues already made an offer of €40m plus one of Timo Werner or Christian Pulisic.
Juventus have rejected that proposal though as they want more cash instead of a Chelsea player. The Old Lady initially requested the Blues to pay De Ligt’s release clause but according to Tuttosport, there’s now a change of plan,
The Turin-based paper reports Juve are now willing to slightly lower their asking price from €120m to €110m.
Both parties will continue to negotiate until they can find an agreement that suits everyone and the Old Lady’s directors are confident that in the end the Blues’ will match De Ligt’s price tag.
