Oliver Kahn, the director of Bayern Munich, has acknowledged that they are competing with Juventus for Matthijs de Ligt’s services.
The Bundesliga team is looking for a defender with presence, loudness, and leadership qualities.
“We’re pleased with the caliber of the center-backs we have.
However, we can still do better in terms of leadership, volume, and presence.
As Thomas Tuchel searches for Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen replacements, De Ligt is Chelsea’s top defensive target this summer.
De Ligt is worth closer to £86m (or €100m) to Juventus, which is almost £10m more than what they paid Ajax three years prior.
