Chelsea’s attempt to acquire Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus has been interrupted by Bayern Munich in the 2022–2023 club football transfer window.
According to reports, Chelsea made a lowball offer to Juventus for the defender worth 70 million euros plus 10 million euros in add-ons, which the Serie A club rejected.
According to reports, Bayern Munich is attempting to step in on the purchase by providing a lower base price but pricier add-ons.
According to sources, Bayern wants De Ligt to select them over Chelsea rather than engaging Chelsea in a bidding war.
In an effort to fill the void left by Toni Rudiger’s free departure to another club, Chelsea is showing interest in a third defender.
