Corresponding Corriere dello SportMatthijs de Ligt requested a transfer linked to Liverpool this summer.
The Dutch centre-back has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea this summer and has now officially requested a transfer.
It’s fair to say that De Ligt isn’t particularly happy in Turin.
Indeed, there are some issues weighing on De Ligt at Juventus and it seems like this situation has now reached a boiling point.
That ‘generationsThe defender is understandably far from happy with Juve’s recent performances in Serie A – he has finished fourth in two consecutive seasons while his contract negotiations have not been optimal either.
De Ligt is Juve’s highest-paid player but now Juve want to reduce the number of bonuses he can earn, while also unwilling to lower his release clause.
As such, the centre-back is ready to move on and teams in the Premier League are ready to pounce.
Liverpool have had their eyes on De Ligt for some time and according to some reports, the Reds are keen to pair the youngster with Virgil van Dijk at the heart of their defence.
Unfortunately for the Merseyside club, this report states that Manchester United and Chelsea are in pole position to sign De Ligt but these days when Liverpool call it’s hard to turn them down.
This is certainly a situation to keep an eye on.
