The Telegraph reports that Juventus has decided to relax its demands about the 22-year-situation old’s as a result of a recent development.
It’s good news for Chelsea fans who want to see De Ligt wear the club’s colors next season. The Dutch youngster is a really impressive centre-back, playing 100+ games for both Juventus and Ajax already in his short career.
He reportedly submitted a transfer request last month to try to force a move away from Turin, but Juventus highly values their potential.
Following the exits of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger, Thomas Tuchel’s team is in severe need of a couple of centre-backs.
De Ligt’s asking price from Juventus is unknown, but Chelsea is looking at a player who might be the long-term solution at the center of their defense.
