Now it’s getting complicated for Bayern. According to the Italian media, Juventus only wants to let go of the Dutchman Matthjis de Ligt, who is courted by Munich, if an adequate replacement comes. But that’s going to be difficult now.

Bayern want him, that’s now clear: but will they get Matthjis de Ligt, Juventus’ coveted central defender? According to the Italian media, at least 75 million euros are due for the Dutchman. On the other hand, Juventus should only let the defender go if the club gets the replacement they want.

Short, compact, clear

The man Juventus are eyeing as a possible successor to De Ligt is Kalidou Koulibaly and he plays for SSC Napoli. Sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli commented on Koulibaly there and said: “We didn’t have to tell Koulibaly that we weren’t going to sell him to Juventus – because we think Koulibaly is untouchable and not transferable.”

The well-connected reporter Fabrizio Romano reported on Giuntoli’s statement and the following from Naples coach Luciano Spalletti. Accordingly, Spalletti said: “We have prepared an extra large captain’s armband for Kalidou, we want him to stay”.
