FC Bayern is reportedly looking for reinforcements for the defensive.
Now the record champion is said to have asked Juventus Turin about Matthijs de Ligt.
Munich – The transfer carousel at FC Bayern is slowly picking up speed!
Sadio Mané is firmly committed, Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui also play in the record champions' kit with immediate effect.
Now another defensive star is to come to Bayern!
Because Julian Nagelsmann apparently wants a leading player in central defense.
After David Alaba left for Real Madrid last summer, none of the established FCB stars in defense were able to position themselves for this role.
The FCB coach is dissatisfied.
That's why there are now rumors about Matthijs de Ligt from Italy!
Name: Matthijs de Ligt
Age: August 12, 1999 (age 22), Leiderdorp, The Netherlands
Position: Central Defence
Club: Juventus Turin (contract until 2024)
Market value: 70 million
The Dutchman plays for Juventus Turin and is under contract with the old lady until 2024.
There, however, the 22-year-old is dissatisfied, which is why, according to information from the Italian journalist Alfredo Pedullà from
Gazzetta Dello Sport
, Bayern should have asked about De Ligt.
However, according to
, nothing else has happened so far.
In other words, Hasan Salihamidzic only asked about De Ligt's situation.
Although he prefers leaving Turin because he is looking for a new challenge, a transfer seems difficult to implement.

Even if Bayern ensnared him before his transfer to Juve and dealt intensively with a commitment, the defensive star would not be cheap.
He has a release clause in his €120m contract, which runs until 2024, at Juve.
Spheres that the German record champion cannot and does not want to pay.
Manchester City and Chelsea are also said to be interested in de Ligt.
The English could afford the Dutchman more, and the Blues are said to have already submitted an initial offer of 90 million.
Bayern also have special plans internally.
There Benjamin Pavard should move into the center of defense due to the Mazraoui commitment.
The Frenchman himself dares to play the role of defense chief.

Brazzo hung wants to see his top signing Lucas Hernandez in that position.
However, last season showed that the 26-year-old is still a long way from that.
Even Dayot Upamecano, who came to Säbener Straße for 42 million, is not considered the loudspeaker and type of leader that Nagelsmann wants.

In this respect, a player of the format like De Ligt would make sense.
Despite his age, he is already considered a leading player and was already captain at Ajax Amsterdam at the age of 18.
In addition, as a Dutchman, he would have few language adjustment problems.
Mané also thought that Bayern didn't stand a chance.
In the end, however, Salihamidzic and Nagelsmann convinced the offensive star of Liverpool FC.
Maybe that will work with de Ligt too?
