Ammon News - Bayern Munich have reached a verbal agreement with Juventus to sign the centre-back Matthijs de Ligt for a fee that could reach €80m. The Serie A club are guaranteed to receive €70m and the add-ons vary in how likely they are to be achieved.

A deal was struck after day of talks between the clubs and De Ligt, who has agreed personal terms, is preparing to sign a contract to 2027.

An €80m fee would equal Bayern’s transfer record, paid to buy Lucas Hernández from Atlético Madrid in 2019. The German champions stepped up negotiations for De Ligt after concluding a deal to sell the striker Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona for a fee that could reach €50m.

De Ligt, who had also been wanted by Chelsea, joined Juventus from Ajax in 2019 and has played 117 times for the club. The 22-year-old is poised to become the second Netherlands international to join Bayern this summer after the midfielder Ryan Gravenberch. Bayern have also bought Sadio Mané from Liverpool and the right-back Noussair Mazraoui from Ajax.
