EXCLUSIVE TJ – Falk (Sport Bild) on de Ligt: “He communicated to Juve that he wanted to play for Bayern, but the asking price is still too high. On any counterparts …”

The editorial team of TuttoJuve.com contacted by telephone, exclusively, the colleague who is very close to the Bayern affairs and authoritative signature of the sports section of the German newspaper “Bild”, Christian Falk, to talk in depth about the interest of the Bavarians for Matthijs de Ligt and beyond:

Bayern bursts into Matthijs de Ligt. How concrete is the interest in the Juventus defender?

“Bayern’s interest in Matthijs de Ligt is very concrete. Bayern were already interested in him in 2019, but Juve’s offer was too high for the Bavarian club. Now Hasan Salihamidzic sees a chance to buy him. Juve have reported that he would negotiate with other clubs for the transfer of the talented Dutch defender. ”

Juve does not open to discounts and wants at least 90/100 million euros for their defender. Is this a price Bayern could invest for de Ligt?

“Bayern will not pay such a high sum, the managers know that de Ligt does not want to sign a new contract with Juve and there is the possibility that he will leave Turin this summer. For this, their hope is that Juve will not ask so much money. Otherwise de Ligt could start in 2024 as a free transfer, on the other hand he has already told the bianconeri that he wants to move to Bayern “.

To lower the price, could Bayern think of some technical counterpart?

“At the moment, Bayern are not thinking of inserting counterparts. But if Juve were interested in Sabitzer, Pavard, Richards, Zirkzee or Sarr, the Bavarians would gladly talk about it with the bianconeri.”

de Ligt is one of the best young defenders in Europe. How would you see him in the Bundesliga? Would that be the best championship for him?

“The reason why de Ligt imagines playing in the Bundesliga shows that he would fit into this league. There is also a great Dutch player history at Bayern with Mark van Bommel and Arjen Robben. Their figures have given the club a good image. in the Netherlands. So now there is a big chance that Bayern will be able to buy de Ligt for the Bundesliga. “

Thanks to Christian Falk for the courtesy and availability shown during this interview.
