Bayern strengthen defense with Matthijs de Ligt
What was a well-kept secret turned out to be a reality and Matthijs de Ligt is already Bayern Munich’s new footballer. The Dutch centre-back leaves Juventus after three seasons and joins the Bavarian squad until 2027 in search of a new challenge.
Bayern Munich already have a central defender they wanted so much. After negotiations with Juventus , the Bavarian team made the arrival of Matthijs de Ligt official . The Germans managed to hire the Dutch defender after an operation that ended at 80 million euros (70 plus ten in variables) . He signs for five seasons, that is, until 2027 .
Tired of his period in Turin, the former Ajax footballer put an end to his journey in Italy after three seasons. With a contract until 2024, “Vecchia Signora” took a serious stance and asked for 120 million, but finally gave in and fulfilled the player’s desire to leave the club .

The Dutchman will join the German squad after Niklas Süle ‘s departure to Borussia Dortmund as a free agent. The German ended his contract and left for his eternal rival. De Ligt will have the task of matching and surpassing the performance of the footballer who is now dressed in yellow and black.
His Allianz Arena duo could be Upamecano , another young centre-back, but unlike De Ligt, he is quite burly . The ex – Juventus is a more technical defender, with better ball control and a lot of markings. In addition to being great in aerial duels.
Proof of this are the eight goals he managed to score in the ” Vecchia Signora “. After playing in the Eredivise and Serie A, it’s his turn to test the Bundesliga, which is eagerly awaiting him to demonstrate what he’s done at Ajax.
