Crazy ball FC Bayern Munich have finally won the race for the signing of Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt in a transfer deal that could cost more than IDR 1.2 trillion, as reported by Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.
According to the report, the Bundesliga champions reached a verbal agreement on their offer of a proposal with a dowry of IDR 1.06 trillion as a guaranteed initial payment plus a bonus of IDR 151 billion.
It is planned that the contract of this transfer agreement will be concluded as early as the beginning of next week with a formal contract sent by his agent to Matthijs de Ligt after the two parties reached an agreement for a five-year contract until June. 2027
Chelsea were actually very interested in getting the 22-year-old center-back, but the defender of the Dutch national team has always prioritized a move to the Bavarian giants, which is obviously more promising in terms of quality, trophies and style of play.
Actually, on the other hand, it’s a dubious transfer from Juventus. At a very young age, 19 years old, they bought the former Ajax Amsterdam captain for IDR 1.5 trillion. Now when the player reaches maturity, they sell him at a cheaper price even though his contract is still two years away.
While these are very good summer deals for Bayern Munich, they somehow often get cheaper players than expected, such as the successful signing of Sadio Mane from Liverpool for just IDR 620 billion.
Returning to Juventus, losing Matthijs de Ligt, is definitely a big loss for the Turin giants. They have previously seen Giorgio Chiellini go to MLS and Merih Demiral a permanent transfer to Atalanta. Now Massimiliano Allegri will have a busy task in the transfer window looking for a replacement for their Dutch defender, with Gabriel Magalhaes of Arsenal expected to be a transfer target.
