As announced by the journalist specialized in the transfer market Fabrizio Romano, Matthijs de Ligt has a clause in its contract with the Juventus of Turin where he explains that next summer (July 2022) he can leave the club for 150 million euros. A kind of termination clause but that is activated at the end of the next season.
The 21-year-old Dutch central defender has a clause similar to that of Erling Haaland at Borussia Dortmund, Fabrizio Romano himself said.
This information has put several teams on red alert that have shown interest in obtaining the services of Matthijs de Ligt such as Manchester United and FC Barcelona, who could not beat Juventus in the bid to sign him in the summer transfer market of 2019.
A high but affordable price
But, with this possibility, de Ligt once again becomes a clear objective for both teams in the summer transfer market of 2022. But, if he ends up leaving for that price, he will become the most expensive defender in the history of the game. soccer.
De Ligt signed with Juventus Turin from Ajax for € 75 million in 2019 and became one of the faces of the club’s project in the short and long term. He has played 64 games for the current Serie A champions since signing his five-year contract.
The Dutchman is one of the most important young center-backs today and is set to become one of the best in the world in a couple of years.
Although the price is excessive, de Ligt is a center-back who can assure you of almost two decades of high performance and his signing does not seem unreasonable for 150 million euros in two years, understanding that his age also raises his price a lot.
